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…

This is a long show generally suitable for 10 yr and older.
Presented by special arrangement with Concord Theatricals

Operation Facelift

Operation Facelift

The front of our building has seen better days. The canvas awning was ripped and faded, and has been removed. The 1980’s cedar siding is deteriorating and decidedly shabby. We need to replace it all with something bolder and more beautiful for the next few decades. We want the exterior to be as bold and exciting as what happens inside. The cost of replacement (and improvement) will be in the tens of thousands of dollars. Stay tuned for opportunities to donate to this inspiring project.
