Some call it a children’s story, but it’s very much a grown-up story, too. The Secret Garden explores love, loss and renewal. This enchanting musical follows the indomitable spirit of the young orphaned Mary Lennox, who is sent to her uncle’s gloomy estate in Yorkshire, England, where she becomes determined to restore the beauty of a secret abandoned garden. Surrounded by spirits from the past, Mary discovers the courage that provides the will to grow. Her garden becomes place of healing for everyone. This beloved musical is sure to warm your heart.  More details…

Over the years, Salmon Arm has become a much more beautiful and dynamic city and we want Shuswap Theatre to be part of that.

The project will unfold in three phases…(read more…)
