What can you expect from the event
The Secret Garden musical is an adaptation of a book by the same name by Marsha Noman. The musical is a family show that brilliantly mixes music with the classical story. The story is about Mary Lennox, an 11-year-old child. Mary is orphaned in India and, as a result, has to return to her roots in Yorkshire. She begins to live with her uncle Archibald and his son Colin.
As she starts to live at her Uncle's estate, Mary discovers a magical garden that attracts her with its tunes. During her time in the magical garden, her new life is guided by magical spirits from the past. The musical spreads hope and joy and leaves a lasting impression on the audiences.
