Come to the garden

February 11-27, 2022 / Whitaker Center

Orphaned in India, 11-year-old Mary Lennox returns to Yorkshire to live with her reclusive uncle Archibald, whose invalid son Colin has had to bear the guilt of his mother Lily’s death.  When Mary discovers her Aunt Lily’s hidden garden, locked shut and overgrown with vines, Mary is determined to revive the beauty that once was. Surrounded by spirits from the past, who both warn and welcome her, Mary begins to peel away the layers of sadness that cover the estate, showing us the power that a single individual can have to bring light into darkness.

Reviews of The Secret Garden

“Elegant, entrancing... The best American musical of the Broadway season.” – Time 

“A splendid, intelligent musical... It's all you can hope for in children's theatre. But the best surprise is that this show is the most adult new musical of the season.” – USA Today

“A many-splendored children's fable that neither cloys or loses grip on its unique spell.” – Newsday

“Revels in theatrical imagination [and] achieves the irresistible appeal that moves audiences to standing ovations.” – Christian Science Monitor


THE SECRET GARDEN is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals.
