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

We were disappointed that in a theater barely two thirds full, our "seats issued by theater (Lyceum)" were in the very last row. There were fully 3 totally empty rows ahead of us. We will not do Goldstar at the Lyceum again if the seats are not assigned ahead of time.

The Broadway musical Ain't Misbehavin' won three Tony Awards and a New York Drama Critic’s Circle Award. Thirty unforgettable numbers make this sassy and sexy, dance-and-song hit parade one of the most entertaining musicals of our time!
The Harlem Renaissance was one of the most astonishing explosions of creativity in modern American history. Musical genius was onstage most every night at venues like The Cotton Club and The Savoy Ballroom. Clubs on Lennox Avenue were ablaze with stride piano players stunning the world with the new beat of “swing.” And Fats Waller was the king of the street!
Conceived by Richard Maltby, Jr. and Murray Horwitz
Directed and choreographed by Patdro Harris (Crowns)
Musical direction by JMichael
