Enjoy a reserved seat at The Theatre in the Park's production of "The Secret Garden" during a July 9 day trip being planned by the 50 Plus Department of the Johnson County Park & Recreation District. Please register for this trip by June 22, as space is limited.
The Secret Garden Day Trip will let participants experience this enchanting classic of children's literature reimagined in brilliant musical style. 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 secret hidden garden which beckons the children with haunting melodies and a chorus of "Dreamer" spirits from Mary’s past who guide her through her new life, dramatizing this compelling tale of forgiveness and renewal. This show is rated G and is sure to enchant all ages.
