The Secret Garden 

When: Aug. 15-20 2017
Price: $25-$150

There's something about librettist Marsha Norman and composer Lucy Simon's enigmatic opening for the Tony Award-winning 1991 musical The Secret Garden that registers on the hairs on the back of your neck. The sublimated loss and desire in those beguiling opening moments evokes a world in Edwardian England in which an eleven-year-old orphan solves a mystery and helps another shattered family find renewal and healing in what lies beyond the locked iron gates of the forbidden grove of the title. Skyla Woodard, Keegan Story, and Michael Halling anchor the Theatre Raleigh production of this classic of children's literature. —Byron Woods
