The Port Allegany School District Music Department will present Marsha Norman and Lucy Simon’s Tony Award-winning musical The Secret Garden on May 4 and 5. In this popular adaptation of the beloved novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett, young Mary Lennox loses her parents to a cholera epidemic in the British Raj of India, and she travels to England to stay with Archibald Craven, her remote and morose uncle who is still grieving the death of his wife ten years ago. Terrified of every nook and cranny of the haunted Craven Manor on the Yorkshire Moors, Mary seeks refuge in her late aunt’s mysterious walled garden, where she discovers amazing secrets.
Performances are May 4 and 5 at 8:00 p.m. in the Port Allegany High School Auditorium. You may purchase tickets in advance at the Port Allegany School District office or at the door: $9- reserved seating and $6- general admission. Additionally, a special student pre-sale rate of $3.00 for general admission is being offered. This production is by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc., 45 West 45th St., New York, NY 10022.
