"The Secret Garden" by Lucy Simon and Marsha Norman based on the novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett

Spotlight Playhouse's Production of "The Secret Garden" is returning for two special outdoor (Sept 7th & 8th) performances in collaboration with The Stevens-Coolidge Place, an historic garden in North Andover owned and operated by The Trustees.

This enchanting classic of children's literature is reimagined in brilliant musical style by composer Lucy Simon and Marsha Norman. 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.

The Stevens-Coolidge Place is a signature example of an estate designed in “The Country Place” style. From about 1890 to 1930, wealthy Americans showcased their travels and taste by drawing inspiration from European garden design in order to transform their rural land holdings into summer retreats. Visitors today can enjoy this peaceful outdoor “hidden gem” year-round thanks to the work of land conservation and historic preservation non-profit, The Trustees.

Performances: Saturday, September 7 at 3PM and Sunday, September 8 at 3PM
