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

The production was very good and thoroughly entertaining. Sticking true to the magic of the original Wizard of Oz, this show was dramatic, funny, magical and very creative. The actress who plays Dorothy really embraced the character and did a believable tribute to Judy Garland. I also enjoyed the actor who played the Cowardly Lion. He was fabulous! The seating is not theatre seating, it's done by assigned tables which makes for limited viewing if you're in the back. All in all a very delightful event and well worth the time and money.
Also... the theatre is right on the Coronado bay and a stone's throw away from the Hotel Del, so it's easy to make an eveniong or afternoon out of the event.
Bring the whole family to this rousing stage production of one of the most beloved stories of all time. Join Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, and the Cowardly Lion on their journey to the Emerald City to see the Wizard. But beware the Wicked Witch of the West. And ride a twister over the rainbow into the magical land of Oz.
