After losing her parents to a cholera epidemic in India, young Mary Lennox is sent to the English Misselthwaite Manor to stay with her uncle, Archibald Craven. Archibald, who has never recovered from the death of his wife, has had most of the mansion locked up, including his wife's beloved garden, and even his son, Colin, a sickly boy, to obliterate her memory. Mary, an unhappy girl herself, finds Colin, unlocks the secret garden and brings it to life. In her process of healing and self-discovery, she brings life back to Colin and Archibald Craven. This enchanting, hour-long musical includes two amusing numbers for the servants' chorus, "Misselthwaite" and "A New State of Affairs"; the wistful ballads, "My Mother's Eyes" and "Dickon"; and the inspirational finale, "The Right Kind of Magic."
