The Secret Garden 2019
Our Lady of Mercy School for Young Women presented the Tony Award winning musical, The Secret Garden in November 2019 . This enchanting classic of children’s literature was re-imagined in brilliant musical style by composer Lucy Simon and Marsha Norman, the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright.
Orphaned in India, 11 year-old Mary Lennox returns to Yorkshire to live with her embittered, reclusive uncle Archibald and his invalid son Colin. The estate’s many wonders include a magic garden which beckons the children with haunting melodies and the “Dreamers,” spirits from Mary’s past who guide her through her new life, dramatizing The Secret Garden’s compelling tale of forgiveness and renewal. This production featured the talents of Mercy’s finest young female performers in conjunction with young male performers from many Rochester area high schools.
