Secret Garden

Secret Garden ticket holders will receive a message from Stage 284 regarding ticketing and may contact Brown Paper tickets directly to arrange for a refund as well (support@brownpapertickets.com). We appreciate the hard work our cast members have invested in creating this show and we are working on new dates for this production later this Spring.

This enchanting classic of children’s literature is reimagined in brilliant musical style by composer Lucy Simon and Marsha Norman, the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright of ‘Night Mother. Orphaned in India, 11 year-old Mary Lennox returns to Yorkshire to live with her embittered, reclusive uncle Archibald and his invalid son Colin. The estate’s many wonders include a magic garden which beckons the children with haunting melodies and the “Dreamers”, spirits from Mary’s past who guide her through her new life, dramatizing The Secret Garden’s compelling tale of forgiveness and renewal.
