More Information


Mary Lennox, alone and bitter about her circumstances, is moved to the house of her absentee uncle. Through her curiosity (and a helpful robin), she discovers a long-locked garden and uncovers a family’s secret. As the garden comes back to life, Mary’s life blossoms with friendship, family, and love. The Secret Garden reveals a young person’s meaningful growth through imagination and ingenuity.

Wheelock Family Theatre founders Susan Kosoff and Jane Staab have written a musical that is true to this classic of children’s literature. This fabled tale is based on the book by Frances Hodgson Burnett with the musical’s book and lyrics by Susan Kosoff.

With Broadway veteran Katherine Leigh Doherty (Mary Poppins, A Little Night Music) as Mary Lennox, the cast also includes Andrew Barbato, Ellis Gage, Jacqui Parker, Jennifer Beth Glick, Russell Garrett, and Neil Gustafson.
