In this Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning drama set in the Bronx in 1964, Sister Aloysius, the principal of a Catholic school in the borough, takes matters into her own hands when she suspects that young newcomer Father Flynn has sexually abused the school's only black student. As she wrestles with her doubts, she questions an idealistic young nun and the mother of the alleged victim, perhaps changing them forever. The 2008 film adaptation, starring Meryl Streep, Amy Adams, Viola Davis and Philip Seymour Hoffman, earned Oscar nominations for all four actors. This gripping drama about suspicion, scandal and the elusiveness of moral certainty stars Karen MacDonald. Learn More

I took my daughter (7yrs old) and her friend. They both loved it. I thought they might find it a little boring but they were enthralled. The singing was beautiful, the set lovely and the acting first rate. What I thought was amazing was the staff and service at Wheelock Family Theater. Everyone was super nice and they had free pizza and the drinks were only $1. It felt like a neighborhood theater with high caliber talent. A super combination for a 'family theater'. I will definitely go again.

The acting was great and all 4 kids (3 boys and 1 girls - ages 9-13). The set on the stage is awesome as usual. Wheelock delivers again.
We have to read the close-caption on the side of the stage due to the story is base on English accent.
Mary Lennox, alone and bitter about her circumstances, is moved to the house of her absentee uncle. Through her curiosity (and a helpful robin), she discovers a long-locked garden and uncovers a family’s secret. As the garden comes back to life, Mary’s life blossoms with friendship, family, and love. The Secret Garden reveals a young person’s meaningful growth through imagination and ingenuity.
Wheelock Family Theatre founders Susan Kosoff and Jane Staab have written a musical that is true to this classic of children’s literature. This fabled tale is based on the book by Frances Hodgson Burnett with the musical’s book and lyrics by Susan Kosoff.
With Broadway veteran Katherine Leigh Doherty (Mary Poppins, A Little Night Music) as Mary Lennox, the cast also includes Andrew Barbato, Ellis Gage, Jacqui Parker, Jennifer Beth Glick, Russell Garrett, and Neil Gustafson.
