MOUNT VERNON - Mistress Mary is quite contrary until she helps her garden grow. Along the way, she manages to cure her sickly cousin, Colin, who is every bit as imperious as she. These two are sullen little peas in a pod, closed up in a gloomy old manor on the Yorkshire moors of England, until a locked-up garden captures their imaginations and puts the blush of a wild rose in their cheeks. As new life sprouts from the earth, Mary and Colin's sour natures begin to sweeten.

For anyone who has ever felt afraid to live and love, The Secret Garden's portrayal of reawakening spirits will thrill and rejuvenate. Accompanied by memorable melodies, Mount Vernon Middle School and High School students will bring this story to life on the stage November 6th and 7th at 7:30 pm and November 7th at 2:30 pm in the high school theater.
