Liz Keifer and cast as Philipstown Depot Theatre presents The Secret Garden on November 15, 2009 in Garrison, New York.
OREM — "The Secret Garden" as a musical, put on now by Hale Center Theater Orem, is very different. The story is told almost entirely through vocals and without much dialogue, but the details of this tale of despair come through. He's obviously a kind man but he can't see beyond his great sorrow to move on and notice the great need around him. When Mary Lennox, a spoiled, bold child played by Maggie Scott (TThS), is orphaned and sent to live with her uncle Archibald, things at the mansion are upset.
Mary, unfazed by the rules she is to obey, discovers Colin, played by Christian Devey (TThS), in his sick bed and his mother's secret garden on the grounds. Most of us know the story from the book written by Frances Hodgson Burnett, but the musical, directed at Hale by Neal C.
The costuming is sumptuous and the set is clever with a twist at the end that is delightful.


Props are perfect, including a three-wheeled wheelchair for Colin and a carriage that really appears to be lumbering across the moors. Jeremy Showgren has done a masterful job of directing the vocals and pulls engaging performances from each cast member, though Bayles and Woodward shine above the rest.
Scott is sweet, curious, courageous and throws a totally believable tantrum in the second act. The Indian soldiers, Mary's parents and the dreamer ghosts are marvelous as they weave in and out of the story, adding color and dimension without breaking down the fourth wall. There's even a good gardening lesson that translates to life: When a thing is wick, clear away the dead parts, loose the earth and let the roots get warm. This is a well-told story, but it might, for some men, fall into the category of a "chick flick" drama.
There's so much music and the pace, particularly in the first act, is deliberately slow as the story of the troubled house is laid out.
It's a beautifully told tragic story with a happy ending, though, so it's worth the time to see.


The opportunity to choreograph during "Innovations" is one avenue for dancers to explore the future. He sloughs off his duties as the head of the household and as a father to his brother Neville, played by Dave Burton (TThS), who is every bit as bitter about Lily's death. Others will probably have some trouble keeping up, especially since events that took months in the book have to happen pretty quickly on stage. She currently does freelance writing from her home in American Fork where she lives with her fellow journalist husband Marc Haddock.
She is sent to live in England with her only surviving relative, an uncle who has lived an unhappy life since the death of his wife 10 years ago.
