DENVER (CBS4) – “The Secret Garden” is about more than just a garden. It is about growth, but it’s also about death and rebirth, loss and redemption, and finding yourself in a simple patch of earth.
Based on the novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett, “The Secret Garden” is the story of Mary Lennox, orphaned in India, spoiled, rude, and sent to live on her Uncle’s dark estate in Yorkshire Moore. There, she discovers a hidden garden that works it’s magic on her and those around her.
“The setting, the sets, and the stage work are marvelous, moving through the estate and the garden effortlessly,” said CBS4 Critic-At-Large Greg Moody. “So too are the performances, characters and voices that move the story along with both power and emotion.”
“This is a wonderful show with which to introduce your children not only to live theater, but to the notion of mature story themes, that may begin uncomfortably, but are ultimately redeeming,” Moody said.
