Here’s the rundown:

By Paul Ledoux, adapted from the novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett; Directed by Allen MacInnis.

Gardens, like people, need sustenance and attention in order to thrive. In this beloved classic, Mary Lennox is sent from India to live with her uncle in Yorkshire. Left to wander his gloomy old manor, Mary lashes out at those around her. Then … she discovers a mysterious hidden garden. In taking refuge there, Mary uncovers secrets that, like her, need to be brought into the sunshine. Tickets: $25-$41
