Secret Garden Adaptation Performances July 21, 22

The Secret Garden, a musical adaptation from the classic novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett, is the next production due at Hutton’s Hamlet in Oakdale.

Mary Lennox is sent to live with her uncle in England after her parents die in India.

Misselthwaite Manor turns out to be a gloomy fortress. Her uncle is rarely home and his young son, Colin, never leaves his room, convinced he’s an incurable invalid. Mary discovers a strange walled garden that has been locked up for years. With the gardener’s apprentice, Dickon, a lad who can talk to the animals, Mary coaxes the garden back to life. The garden seems to have a wonderful, magical effect on all who come into it, allowing Mary to restore Colin to health and a reunion with his father.

Hutton’s Hamlet Performing Arts Center is at 132 W. G St., Oakdale. Tickets are $12 for adults, $8 for those ages 12 and under.

Performances are scheduled on Friday July 21 at 7 p.m.; Saturday, July 22 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.
