Tickets are now on sale for EKU Theatre's production of the musical "The Secret Garden."

Kentucky native Marsha Norman’s writing earned this show a Tony Award for “Best Book of a Musical," and Drama Desk awards for "Outstanding Book of a Musical" and “Outstanding Musical and Outstanding Lyrics."

Orphaned in India, 11 year-old Mary Lennox returns to Yorkshire to live with her embittered uncle, Archibald, and his invalid son, Colin. The estate's many wonders include a magic garden that beckons the children with haunting melodies and the "Dreamers," spirits from Mary's past who guide her through her new life. "The Secret Garden" is a compelling tale of forgiveness and renewal.

Directed by Sarah Evans, the EKU Theatre production of "Secret Garden" is a unique collaboration, bringing together professional guest artists, community members, and faculty and students from EKU’s music and theatre programs.
