Woodland Theatre Productions announces the cast of their spring musical The Secret Garden. The Secret Garden, based on the classic 1911 children’s novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett, follows the story of Mary Lennox (Lily Kirry). A cholera epidemic has ravaged the Indian Village in which Mary was born, killing her Mother Rose Lennox (Kathleen Malcolm), her Father Captain Albert Lennox (Brian Estelle), and her Hindu nursemaid Ayah (Angela Wepome Baldwin). Mary has no one left in the world when crotchety Mrs. Medlock (Rhonda Delles) is sent to escort Mary to Misselthwaite Manor, a drafty old English mansion looming on the edge of the moors. She arrives at her Uncle Archibald Craven’s (Ted Richart) home only to be ignored by both him and his brother, Dr. Neville Craven (Clint Kirry). She is introduced to her servants Jane (Hannah Kaste) and Martha Sowerby (Stazya Richman) her maidservant. In Martha she finally meets someone whose charming frankness and kindness helps her start her new life. Willful and lonely Mary explores the dark home and grounds only to find that the house is not only devoid of happiness, but also full of ghosts of the past – the “Dreamers” (Peggy Townley, Kevin Christensen, Ian Lee, Sean Taboloff, Tommy Kirry, Justin Lester, Merideth Kirry, and Nancy Christopher). Against the wishes of Dr. Craven, Mary explores a forbidden wing of the manor where she discovers her cousin Colin Craven (Jimmy Kirry) a crippled boy who is thought to be terminally ill. Angered by Mary’s impulsiveness, Dr. Craven sends for Mrs. Winthrop (Kathryn Dorman) the headmistress of the Abeerdeen School for Girls, in an unsuccessful bid to send Mary away. But Mary had decided to stay; entranced by the secret garden that she uncovered, the garden that once belonged to her late Aunt Lily Craven (Melissa Kirry). Locked and abandoned, no one can even remember where the door to this garden is, until a robin leads Mary to its hidden key. In this garden she meets Dickon (Adam Huff) who has the power to charm both animals and people, and Ben Weatherstaff (Thomas Hart) who clandestinely climbed the gate and tended the garden during the ten years since Lily’s death. Together they discover the healing power of the earth, which allows for love to grow, heal and flourish. Enhanced by a beautiful and powerful score, the musical version of this classic story is an unforgettable experience for audiences young and old.
Director and Set Designer Sean Taboloff brings an eloquence to the telling of the story, with creative and compelling stage pictures. The Secret Garden is certainly a show for all ages.
