Don't miss this season's children's theatre production!

Adapted from the classic children's book, this one-act play tells the tale of Mary, a lonely and spoiled orphan who arrives at Misselthwaite Manor under the care of her absent uncle.  Left to her own devices, Mary discovers a secret garden and a sickly boy who turns out to be her cousin Colin!  Attentive and nurturing, Mary helps to create magical transformations at Misselthwaite Manor.
