The Un-Common Theatre Company is proud to present the Tony award winning musical â€œThe Secret Gardenâ€ at the Orpheum Theater, Foxboro over the weekend of April 1st.
Based on the classic childrenâ€™s novel by Francis Hodgson Burnett, â€œThe Secret Gardenâ€ tells the haunting story of a young girlâ€™s struggle to free the inhabitants of a gloomy Yorkshire mansion who are emotionally imprisoned by a tragic memory. Through her tenacity, human courage and her profound sense of dignity, young Mary Lennox, sent to live in the sorrowful house following the death of her parents from cholera, brings her departed auntâ€™s neglected garden back to life, along with the spirit and soul of her long grieving uncle and the health of her fragile, bedridden cousin.
Director Michael La Fleur brings the heart and soul of this emotionally charged musical to life through pure theatrical staging, intriguing illusions, and haunting visual imagery. Guided by the whirling, gliding ghosts of her past, and with the help of a handful of unforgettable characters, Maryâ€™s story unfolds in dark visions of haunted hallways, a moving, dancing maze, portraits that come to life and, through some simple but artistically realized, creative stagecraft, a breathtaking garden that blooms before the audienceâ€™s eyes.
Esther Zabinski, Music and Orchestra Director, leads the talented cast of 29 through the beautiful and sophisticated musical score.
