Apex Theatre Studio Inc., in partnership with the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall, is delighted to announce that their fourth annual summer theater season will open with three performances of the Broadway musical hit, “The Secret Garden”, based on the beloved children’s novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett. The story is set in the early years of the 20th century. Mary Lennox, a young English girl born and raised in the British Raj, is orphaned by a cholera outbreak when she is 10 years old. She is sent away from India to Yorkshire, England to live with relatives whom she has never met. Her own personality blossoms as she and a young gardener bring new life to a neglected garden, as well as to her sickly cousin and uncle.
“The Secret Garden” Company features advanced level musical theater artists from six area high schools as well as featured performers from Florida State University, the University of Florida, and several out of state colleges. The production is under the direction of David Loudermilk.
