Why See The Secret Garden?

The Broadway musical adaptation premieres in Denver

The much-loved children's novel by Frances Hodgeson Burnett sees a beautiful musical adaptation come to the Denver stage. First premiering on Broadway in 1991, this tale of childhood bereavement and eventual healing, the action takes us from the exotic climes of India to the windswept marshes of Yorkshire, as our young heroine Mary Lennox learns to embrace love and friendship in the most unlikely of places. And when she happens upon a mysterious key buried in the gardens, little does she know how much it will transform her life.

Ten-year old Mary Lennox is sent to England from colonial India, following the death of her wealthy yet neglectful socialite parents from cholera. Taken in by her reclusive uncle, the spoiled, selfish Mary finds herself in a large, forboding mansion, where servants are too busy to care for her childish whims, and she is left to her own devices. Discovering a key to her late aunt's walled garden, her desire to nurse the garden back to life behind the backs of her uncle and the formidable housekeeper Mrs Medlock brings her into contact with a local boy Dicken, who helps her to cultivate it. However, a cry late at night leads her to discover a long-lost relative, and a childhood bond is established, as well as the family's path to healing and love.
