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

"Wit" is indeed witty, funny at times, and by turns visceral, tragic, and beautiful. Capably supported by fine actors,including local legends Jim Chovick and Sylvia M’Lafi Thompson, and a notably tender, sensitive turn by Cynthia Gerber, it is Deborah Gilmour Smyth's amazing (even devastating) portrayal of Professor ("Doctor of Philosophy") Vivian Bearing on which the entire play rests. As a devoted theatregoer I must say that hers is one of the most honest, hard-to-watch-yet-harder-to-turn-away-from performances I've ever had both the pleasure and pain to see.
