Show Synopsis: Everyone will love this charming, upbeat adaptation of a literary classic.  Mary Lennox (’Such A Difficult Child’) is sent to live 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 help restore Colin to health and a reunion with his father.  The score is bright and delightful:  ’Take a Flower To the Fair,’ You Can Do It,’ ’Something’s Happening With Master Colin.’ This version also introduces the endearing Sowerby family (’One Big Happy Family’).

Other Info: Approximately 35-45 students will be cast. Students involved will learn characterization, blocking, costuming, makeup and all aspects of a stage production.

Tibbits Young Audiences offers programs both for and by area youth to develop their interest in the arts. Two shows yearly, a non-musical in the fall and a musical in the spring, provide students an enjoyable introduction to the world of theatre. By putting on a show, they learn teamwork, discipline, theatre skills, self confidence and an appreciation for the arts.
