Secret Garden

  Directed by:  Richard "Buzz" Herman, Fall 2016 University of Central Missouri.

Concept:  The Secret Garden is a classic tale that details the rebuilding of a sad and broken family through the growth and rebirth of an English Garden.  I love this musical and has a great time with the Edwardian look of the show.  Mary begins sullen and muted as does Colin.  Mary even appears at her birthday party where she dreams of place she is loved and accepted in an all white version of her finale dress which is in full bloom with color.  Lily's gown reflects the time she died, while her sister rose appears in an edwardian era gown.  All dreamers wore white or off white to extract them from the action.
