"We are honored to introduce Skyla Woodard and Keegan Story to our Theatre Raleigh audience. We are lucky to have a very rich talent pool in this area- and especially fortunate to have these incredibly talented kids in the show! Skyla and Keegan knocked our socks off and left us with a very easy casting choice. It excites me that our shows represent the world we live in and the diverse audiences we serve," said Lauren Kennedy, Artistic Director of Theatre Raleigh.

When young Mary Lennox (Skyla Woodard) loses her parents to a cholera outbreak in India, she is sent to live with her uncle, hermit Archibald Craven (Michael Halling), who lives in an imposing, secluded manor on the British heath. Inside the haunting house upon the hill, Mary finds a reclusive, long-suffering collection of souls. Since her aunt Lily's (Jenny Latimer) death, Mary's uncle has pushed away his surviving loved ones, leaving his bedridden son, Colin (Keegan Story), alone. Sickly Colin, hidden away in the depths of the manner, bears the guilt of his mother's death on his crippled shoulders. When Mary discovers her Aunt Lily's hidden garden, locked shot and overgrown with vines, stubborn Mary is determined to revive the beauty that once was. Surrounded by spirits from the past, who both warn and welcome her, determined Mary begins to peel away the layers of sadness that cover the house and the garden, showing us the power that "one small girl" can have when she "wants things to grow."
