The Secret Garden, a musical based on the family-friendly novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett, will take the MTHS stage beginning March 22 and continuing through March 25.

The show features a cast of 49 MTHS students with another 20 students working backstage or as part of the technical crew.

The story follows orphaned Mary Lennox on her journey from India to England where she is sent to live with her reclusive uncle and his invalid son. While exploring her new surroundings, Mary is drawn to a hidden garden, which she soon learns belonged to her uncle’s late wife.

Her determination and success in bringing the garden back to life results in a healing power of forgiveness and love to encompass all of the household.

Tickets can be ordered by calling the MTHS Auditiorium (357-4151 ext. 574). The show starts at 7 p.m. March 22-24 and 2 p.m. March 25.

Tickets are $7 for adults, $5 for senior citizens and grade school students, and free to MTHS students with a current ID. All seating is reserved.
