Audition Description

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

  • Mary\'s aunt & Archibald Craven\'s wife. Died of a tragic accident within her garden & metaphorically haunts the walls of Misselthwaite Manor.
