Arden Theatre Company Announces
One-Week Extension for THE SECRET GARDEN
Show now runs through Sunday, June 26, 2016
June 3, 2016

(Philadelphia, PA) Due to popular demand, the Arden Theatre Company announces a one-week extension of THE SECRET GARDEN. Based on the beloved novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett, with music by Lucy Simon and book and lyrics by Marsha Norman, the show, originally scheduled to close on Sunday, June 19th, will now close Sunday, June 26, 2016.

After the sudden death of her parents, ten-year-old Mary Lennox is sent to live with an uncle whom she’s never met. Mourning the loss of his own true love, Uncle Archibald is distant and strange. Cold, bleak Misselthwaite Manor, haunted by spirits and secrets of the past, is no place for a little girl. Strong-willed and brave-hearted, Mary finds solace in a locked-up, hidden garden, and with it, a path to rebirth, proving that hope can bloom from the darkest of places. With a heartwarming story and beautiful, soaring ballads, THE SECRET GARDEN is a musical treat for young and old alike.

The Arden’s production of THE SECRET GARDEN has been hailed by critics as, “Captivatingly creative and inspired,” “Enchanting” and “Gorgeous.” Managing Director Amy Murphy said, “We are happy to be able to serve more audience members with this extension. Everyone should get to see this show and our limited ticket inventory before the extension would not allow that.”

Wednesday, June 22 at 2pm

Friday, June 24 at 8pm
