Music Mountain Theatre presents "The Secret Garden"

(LAMBERTVILLE, NJ) -- Music Mountain Theatre presents The Secret Garden weekends from February 3-19. The enchanting classic of children’s literature is reimagined in brilliant musical style. The Secret Garden sees Mary, an 11- year-old living in British India, forced from her home by tragedy.

Mary finds herself in Yorkshire, England, on the estate of her reclusive uncle, Archibald Craven, and his son, Colin. What ensues is a compelling mixture of love, suspense, and rebirth in which the raw power of nature gives way to miracle and magic.  The stunning musical score and classic story combine to create one of the most powerful theatre experiences of all time. 

The cast is led by Lillian Irene and Nora Bella Kushnier, who will alternate the role of Mary Lennox with Matthew Golian and Peter F. Piccini sharing the part of Mary’s cousin, Colin.  Additional cast members include Louis Palena as Archibald Craven, Libby Kane (Rose), Jenna Parrilla Alvino (Martha), David LaRaus (Dicken), Jenny McNiven (Rose), Andrew Ferrie (Neville), David Whiteman, Lauren Brader, Lucinda Fisher, Dan Mucha, Patrick Lavery, Morgan Tarrant, Alison McMullen, Bill Weir, Nicholas Kianka, Jaydin Houck, Carrie Scherder, Phoenix Fritch and Suzanne Green. 

The production is under the guidance of director and choreographer Jordan Brennan. Rhett Commodaro joins as assistant director, with Jared Williams handling musical direction and Christopher Cichon heading the technical team.

The Secret Garden will be presented on weekends from February 3-19, with a total of 12 performances. Show times are Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00pm, Saturdays and Sundays at 3:00pm. Tickets are $32 for adults and $30 for students/seniors/military and can be purchased by visiting, in person at the box office, or by calling 609.397.3337.
