Frances Hodgson Burnett’s beloved Victorian classic, The Secret Garden, blossoms anew in this enchanting musical by Pulitzer Prize-winner Marsha Norman and Lucy Simon. When young Mary Lennox loses her parents to a cholera outbreak in India, she is sent to live with her uncle, hermit Archibald Craven, who lives in an imposing, secluded manor on the British heath. Inside the haunting house upon the hill, Mary finds a reclusive, long-suffering collection of souls. Since her aunt Lily’s death, Mary’s uncle has pushed away his surviving loved ones, leaving his bedridden son, Colin, alone. Sickly Colin, hidden away in the depths of the manner, bears the guilt of his mother’s death on his crippled shoulders. When Mary discovers her Aunt Lily’s hidden garden, locked shot and overgrown with vines, stubborn Mary is determined to revive the beauty that once was. Surrounded by spirits from the past, who both warn and welcome her, determined Mary begins to peel away the layers of sadness that cover the house and the garden, showing us the power that “one small girl” can have when she “wants things to grow.”

Details: Friday and Saturday arrive between 6-6:30 to enjoy a cocktail before dinner is served. Dinner will be a sit down 3 course meal to include fresh spring mix with Tuscan vinaigrette, Flatiron steak and Marinated Chicken with vegetable medley and baked potato, rolls and butter, dessert and coffee. Tax, tip and gratuity included.

High tea is thought  to to be a mid day snack.  Arrive between 1:00-1:30. Full bar available. Each table will be served a 3 tiered tower of Sweet and savory treats. Finger sandwiches, fruit and scones to name a few items, with accompaniments and of course hot tea and coffee.
