The Secret Garden, Spring Version

A Benefit Concert to Celebrate of 30 Years of ACT

Performing via Livestream: August 7, 2021

Ages 7-18

“When a thing is wick, it will grow.”

Orphaned in India, 11 year-old Mary Lennox returns to Yorkshire to live with her embittered, reclusive uncle Archibald and his invalid son Colin. The estate’s many wonders include a magic garden which beckons the children with haunting melodies and the “Dreamers,” spirits from Mary’s past who guide her through her new life, dramatizing The Secret Garden’s compelling tale of forgiveness and renewal.

This staged concert version of THE SECRET GARDEN will invite all ACT alumni from throughout our 30 years to join the choir in celebration of the community we have had the honor of cultivating over our history — our very own garden.
