“I found your mother’s garden. It’s a secret garden.“

            The enchanting story of Mary Lennox is reimagined in
brilliant musical style by Lucy Simon and Marsha Norman.
Mary is sent to live on an estate in Yorkshire, where she meets
her embittered uncle, his invalid son, and some lively
characters on the moor. Most importantly, she is charmed
by the hopefulness of a magical garden. The music is superb,
beautifully haunting, and unforgettable. In 1991, Time called
the play "Elegant, entrancing...the best American musical of
the Broadway season," and it went on to win the Tony Award
for Best Book of a Musical that year. Sure to be another Merely
Players sell-out, The Secret Garden is family entertainment
at its best.
