The Secret Garden will be presented by the Sunriver Stars Community Theater at The Door in the Sunriver Business Park.
Directed by Victoria Kristy, with Gail Gibson as assistant director, the musical is a charming, upbeat adaptation of the literary classic by Frances Hodgson Burnett. Mary Lennox is sent to live in Victorian England after her parents die in India of the dreaded cholera. Misselthwaite Manor turns out to be a gloomy fortress. Her uncle is rarely home and his young son, Colin, never leaves his room, convinced he’s an incurable invalid. Mary discovers a strange walled garden that has been locked up for years.
With the gardener’s apprentice, Dickon, a lad who can talk to the animals, Mary coaxes the garden back to life. The garden seems to have a wonderful, magical effect on all who come into it, allowing Mary to help restore Colin to health and a reunion with his father.
This is a real ‘feel good’ show. It is filled with characters, young, older, grumpy, snooty, forlorn, curious, loving, wise and…. all delightful.
The score is bright and whimsical, and will have the actors, under the musical direction of Sharon Sackett and the choreography of Rich Mundy, singing and dancing their way into your hearts!

Tickets: Adults $15, Students 18 and under $10, Dinner show $40 (includes dinner and show)
