The Secret Garden

2020 National Tour

From: 2 Aug 2020 To: 29 Nov 2020

When it premiered on Broadway, The Secret Garden took New York by storm. Rave reviews, Tony Awards and international productions all followed.

Now, for the first time in twenty-five years, this sensational musical returns to Australia. Based on the much-loved novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett, this heart-warming story comes to life on-stage with the same magical qualities, in this sophisticated take on the literary classic.

Young, orphaned Mary Lennox arrives at her uncle’s home to find distant grieving relatives – and the mysterious tale of a secret garden. Together with new-found friends, Mary breathes life into the secret garden. She blossoms too, and through her adventures, tends to all the hearts around her.
