One of the most beloved children's books of all time makes its way to the stage in the musical The Secret Garden. On a windswept moor in a lonely old house, a grieving widower and his sickly son spend their days lonely and lost, haunted by the ghosts of departed loved ones. Enter Mary, a sour young orphan who has lost her family to cholera and come to live with her uncle. She discovers a locked garden that's been left to grow wild and uncared for -- much like Mary herself. Her quest to find the key and restore the garden uncovers startling secrets and a family tragedy. With the help of her new friend Dickon and her cousin Colin, Mary brings new life to the garden and to her grief-stricken uncle. Presented by the award-winning California Youth Conservatory Theatre and directed by Shaun T. Evans, this magical musical is the perfect vehicle for CYC's cast of talented young actors and seasoned professionals. Enhanced by a beautiful and powerful score performed by a live orchestra, the musical version of this beloved story is a delight for audiences of all ages. Learn More

- "This delicious confection will work its magic on everyone!" --<em>The Daily Telegraph </em>
Enchanted April, nominated for a Tony Award for Best Play of 2003, is funny and wise. Set in 1920s Italy, four Englishwomen escape their cloudy and dreary lives—and marriages—to embark on a bold journey to Tuscany that will change their lives forever. This play is funny, wise and a treat for both eye and ear.
