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

 

2173The coming-of-age story about recently orphaned Mary Lennox is adapted by playwright Rachel Teagle in this world premiere. 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 is the playwright behind such previous Serenbe Playhouse adaptations as The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, The Velveteen Rabbit and Alice in Wonderland. Performed outdoors, as all Serenbe shows are. Note: Not to be confused with the Broadway musical of the same name.

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

MODA digs into shelter and sustainability
