The Secret Garden

Northfield Arts Guild Theater, 411 Third Street W.

The Secret Garden plays at the Northfield Arts Guild Theater weekends April 12-28 with Friday and Saturday performances at 7:30pm and Sunday matinees at 2pm.  This enchanting classic of children’s literature is re imagined in brilliant musical style by composer Lucy Simon and Marsha Norman, the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright of ‘Night Mother.  

Orphaned in India, young Mary Lennox returns 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 the “Dreamers”, spirits from Mary’s past who guide her through her new life, dramatizing The Secret Garden‘s compelling tale of forgiveness and renewal.

“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
