A Voices in the Wind Audio Theatre Production and The First Noelle Productions
The Secret Garden, one of the most popular children’s stories of all time, comes to life in this magical audio theatre presentation featuring Golden Voice Barbara Rosenblat (from the original 1991 Tony Award–winning Broadway show) as Mrs. Medlock, Golden Voice Michael Crouch as Colin, ATC Seneca Award Nominee for Best Actress Georgia Lee Schultz as Mary Lennox, and John Jarvis as Ben Weatherstaff. Engaging sound effects and music enhance this full-cast dramatization.
Frances Hodgson Burnett introduces us to Mary Lennox, a spoiled and headstrong young girl sent to live with her uncle Archibald Craven at Misselthwaite Manor after her parents die from a cholera outbreak in India. At first, Mary is as sour and rude as ever. She dislikes her new home, the people living in it, and, most of all, the bleak moor on which it sits.
However, Mary soon discovers an abandoned secret garden behind the gate in the manor. Slowly her ill health and attitude change when she meets Dickon, a local boy who has a way with animals, and sickly Colin. Together they transform the garden and become close friends, transforming each other in the process.
The Secret Garden explores themes of rejuvenation, isolation, happiness, what it truly means to be weak or strong, and what truly makes a home.
