The Rose State College musical adaptation of “The Secret Garden,” based on the book by Frances Hodgson Burnett, is set to take the stage November 8-10 in the Performing Arts Theatre at the campus.
This enchanting classic of children's literature is re-imagined 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 hidden 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.
Shows are November 8 and 9 at 7:30 p.m. and November 10 at 2 p.m., all at the Rose State College Performing Arts Theatre, 6000 Trosper Road, Midwest City.
