The Secret Garden is the last of three classic stories presented by professional actors in a staged reading in the Morrison Center's beautiful Recital Hall. This completes the 7th season of the Family Reading Series. With bits of costumes, sound effects and music, characters from great works of fiction and drama come alive in theatre of the imagination where you become a part of the story.
Normally the 500 year old Misselthwaite Manor on the Yorkshire moors isn't a place for a child to grow up. And there is a big mystery about a secret garden that had been locked up ten years ago. Come experience the story of young Mary Lennox, newly arrived from India, as she discovers new friends, helps to heal a sickly boy and reveals the secrets of this mysterious place. (Every child will receive a special packet of flower seeds!)

Today the Center is recognized as a major destination for arts and culture, annually hosting hundreds of live entertainment and arts education offerings that serve to enrich the lives of patrons of all ages.
