About this show

Based on the beloved novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden follows recently orphaned 10-year-old Mary Lennox, a young girl sent to live with her estranged uncle on the Yorkshire moors. When she discovers the key to her deceased aunt's secret garden, Mary unearths a renewed sense of spirit for herself and her sickly cousin, bringing the weary estate and its occupants back to exuberant life with the full force of spring.

Daisy Eagan, who won the 1991 Tony for Best Featured Actress in a Musical for her portrayal of Mary Lennox, making her the youngest actress ever to win the award, stars as Martha in this production, opposite Bea Corley in the role Eagan originated. Also featured in the cast are Broadway's Tam Mutu, Tony Award nominee Josh Young, Lizzie Klemperer, Charlie Franklin, Seán G. Griffin, Guthrie Greenwood Bettinger and Coleman Hunter alternating the role of Colin, as well as Seattle favorite Marianne Owen as Mrs. Medlock.

With book and lyrics by Pulitzer Prize winner Marsha Norman and music by Lucy Simon, this captivating show will mesmerize audiences of all ages and transport you to a world where beauty and love blossom, and a forgotten seed of life can still flourish.
