Frances Hodgson Burnett’s beloved children’s classic Victorian novel, The Secret Garden, blossoms anew in this enchanting Tony Award winning musical by Pulitzer Prize-winner playwright, Marsha Norman and composer, Lucy Simon.
The story begins as young Mary Lennox loses her parents to a cholera outbreak in India, she is sent to live with her grieving uncle, Archibald Craven, who lives in an imposing, secluded manor on the in the moors of Yorkshire, England. Since her Aunt Lily’s death, Mary’s uncle has pushed away his surviving loved ones, leaving his bedridden son, Colin, alone. Sickly Colin, hidden away in the depths of the manner, bears the guilt of his mother’s death on his crippled shoulders.
When Mary discovers her Aunt Lily’s hidden garden, locked and overgrown with vines, stubborn Mary is determined to revive the beauty that once was. She is surrounded by spirits from the past and lively friends she meets in the present, who both warn and welcome her. Strong-minded 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 grow.” This compelling musical masterpiece about the power of forgiveness and renewal speaks to all ages.
Under the direction of Melodie Dickerson, Director, Choral/Vocal Studies, the cast features 22 performers including students from the Collegiate School and the Music Program as well as a 15 piece orchestra directed by Rex Willis, Professor of Theory and Composition. Choreography is by Kelly Burnette, Instructor of Dance.
The Secret Garden is offered by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc., a Concord Theatricals Company.
SCFCS students featured in the show are: Alexandra Adams, Robyn Bell, Eric Long, Sage Samuels and Zoe White and Malory Barnes is a Stage Manager!
