The Windham Theatre Guild is proud to present live on stage the Broadway hit musical The Secret Garden, opening Friday, July 19th at the Burton Leavitt Theatre, 779 Main Street, Willimantic.
Based on the well known and loved children’s book by Frances Hodgson, The Secret Garden tells the story of Mary Lennox, a spoiled orphan girl who is sent to live with her uncle on the Yorkshire moors and discovers locked away secrets of a family in mourning.
