“The Secret Garden" musical, based on Frances Hodgson Burnett's classic novel, tells the story of Mary Lennox, a young girl who is orphaned and sent to live with her reclusive uncle in Yorkshire, England. Lonely and neglected, Mary discovers a hidden garden on her uncle's estate, which she transforms with the help of her sickly cousin, Colin, and a young gardener named Dickon. As the garden blooms, so do the lives of its caretakers, as they find healing, friendship, and the power of hope amidst the beauty of nature. Through enchanting music and heartfelt storytelling, "The Secret Garden" celebrates the resilience of the human spirit and the magic of connection.

The Secret Garden features music by Lucy Simon, and music and lyrics by Marsha Norman. It is based on the 1911 novel of the same name by Frances Hodgson Burnett. The Broadway production premiered in New York City at the St. James Theatre on April 25, 1991, and closed on January 3, 1993, after 709 performances. That production won the 1991 Tony Awards for Best Book of a Musical, Best Featured Actress in a Musical (Daisy Eagan), and Best Scenic Design (Heidi Landesman). Since its premiere, “The Secret Garden” has had productions in Australia and London, two tours, two concert productions, and many regional productions.
