Hope is powerful magic

The beloved classic The Secret Garden blossoms anew in this enchanting musical full of beautiful melodies. When young Mary is sent to live with her uncle after the death of her parents, she finds herself surrounded by distant relatives who are overcome by grief and fear. But when she uncovers the key to her late aunt’s long-lost garden, she becomes determined to revive the beauty that once flourished. Surrounded by spirits of the past, she uses the magic of hope to help the world around her grow once again.

Producing Partners: Isabelle Clark and Diana & Mike Kinsey

For all performances of The Secret Garden, the DCPA is continuing to test a new system to greatly expand our services for patrons who are deaf or hard of hearing: Personal Captioning Devices.

24 personal captioning devices will be available at every performance. Each device is configured with personal closed captioning software and comes with an adjustable mount, enabling users to enjoy private captioning in any seating location. To reserve, simply follow the prompt in the pop-up window during the check out process.
