Presented by CFCArts Youth Theatre Troupe
This enchanting classic of children’s literature is reimagined in brilliant musical style by composer Lucy Simon and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Marsha Norman. Orphaned in Colonial India, 11 year-old Mary Lennox journeys to England to live with her mysterious uncles, Archibald and Neville Craven. The Craven mansion’s many wonders include a magic garden which beckons to Mary with memories and melodies, and the “Dreamers”, spirits from Mary’s past who guide her through her new life. The Secret Garden is a magical and compelling tale of forgiveness, renewal, and love.
