Frances Hodgson Burnett’s beloved Victorian classic, The Secret
Garden, blossoms anew in this enchanting musical by Pulitzer

her parents to a cholera outbreak in India, she is sent to live with her
uncle, hermit Archibald Craven, who lives in an imposing, secluded manor
on the British heath. Inside the haunting house upon the hill, Mary
finds a reclusive, long-suffering collection of souls. Since her Aunt

who both warn and welcome her, determined Mary begins to peel away the
layers of sadness that cover the house and the garden, showing us the
power that “one small girl” can have when she “wants things to
