The Secret Garden based on the novel written by Frances Hodgson Burnett with song lyrics written by Marsha Norman and music by Lucy Simon, creates a charming and wonderfully entertaining musical. The talented
cast brings to life the tale of Mary Lennox, a spoiled and lonely ten year old girl sent to live with her grieving uncle Archibald in Yorkshire after being orphaned by a cholera epidemic in India. Archibald casts a dark shadow over the manor. Both Mary and Archibald suffer from haunting dreams concerning their horrible experiences; the loss of Mary's parents and the loss of Archibald's love, Lily. Late one night, Mary hears faint crying somewhere in the house and discovers her bedridden cousin, Colin. Although they are both lonely and miserable, a friendship grows between them. Mary soon discovers a secret walled garden hidden in the grounds and releases the magic and adventure locked inside. By nursing this garden back to life, Mary somehow restores life to her grieving uncle and cousin.
The audience will share in the magic of discovering Lily's garden; feel the heartbreak in Archibald's beautiful songs and the companionship between Mary and Colin. Many talented artists at Port Tobacco Players worked on the backgrounds and props, making the story "spring" to life. So as spring arrives, and small flowers struggle to poke out of the ground in your yard The Secret Garden is just the musical to see.
