The Secret Garden will be playing at the Sydney Lyric from 4 August - 6 September 2020.

When it premiered on Broadway in 1991, The Secret Garden took New York by storm. Tony Awards, national tours and international productions all followed. Now, for the first time in sixteen years, this sensational musical returns to Australia in all its glory.

The famous novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett on which the musical is based is known and loved by many. This heart-warming story comes to life on stage with the same magical qualities, and rewards audiences with its sophisticated take on this literary classic. 

Mary Lennox arrives at her uncle’s home to find distant grieving relatives and an uncared- for garden. The story centres around the young, orphaned Mary as she and a young gardener breathe new life into the secret garden.

Mary blossoms too, and through this she tends to all the hearts around her.

The sumptuous score contains a raft of wonderful songs, including ‘A Bit of Earth’, ‘Show Me the Key’, and the unforgettable ‘Lily’s Eyes’.
