Serenbe Playhouse invites you inside its own special ‘Secret Garden’

 

2173This coming-of-age story about recently orphaned Mary Lennox is adapted by playwright Rachel Teagle in this world premiere at Serenbe Playhouse. The show marks the debut of the new (and permanent) English Garden at Serenbe, created specifically to immerse performers and audiences within the endless estate of Mary’s gruff uncle. Teagle, whose adaptation is based on the 1911 novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett, is the playwright behind such previous Serenbe adaptations as The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, The Velveteen Rabbit and Alice in Wonderland. Performed outdoors, as all Serenbe shows are. Note: This is not the Broadway musical version, which goes by the same name.

* PURCHASE HERE. ALL TICKETS WILL BE HELD AT WILL CALL.
