WWU Presents: The Secret Garden


The Secret Garden, the enchanting classic children’s story of forgiveness and renewal, is reimagined in brilliant musical style by composer Lucy Simon and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Marsha Norman. Orphaned in India, 11 year-old Mary Lennox is sent to Yorkshire to live with her embittered, reclusive uncle Archibald and his invalid son Colin. The estate’s many wonders include a magic garden which beckons the children with haunting melodies, and spirits from Mary’s past who guide her through her new life. This concert presentation of the Tony-Award-winning musical is the perfect event for a theatre lover, symphony patron, or opera buff of any age. With a stunning professional orchestra as the backdrop, and a company of talented singing actors as your guides, you will surely find yourself transported.
