One of the most beloved children's books of all time makes its way to the stage of the Stoneham Theatre. A musical that took home three Tony Awards (including Best Book of a Musical) for its original Broadway run in 1991, The Secret Garden transports audiences to a lonely old house on a windswept moor, in which a grieving widower and his sickly son spend their days lonely, lost and haunted by the ghosts of departed loved ones. Enter Mary, a sour young orphan who's come there to live with her uncle. It isn't long before she discovers a locked garden that's been left to grow wild and uncared for -- much like Mary herself. Her subsequent 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. Written by Pulitzer Prize winner Marsha Norman (The Color Purple and 'night, Mother) with music by Lucy Simon (Doctor Zhivago), this lush musical delivers a magical theatrical experience. Learn More

On the morning of her wedding day, Shelby Eatenton, her mother and her mother’s outrageous friends – the lovable curmudgeon Ouiser and small-town grande dame Clairee – gather in Truvy’s small town Louisiana beauty parlor to celebrate her future. Filled with humor and heartbreak, these “steel magnolias” make us laugh and cry, and finally admire their strength as they face life’s uncertainties with courage and humor. Two of the brightest lights in Boston theatre, Paula Plum and Kathy St.George, join together to bring this beloved story to life.
