When her parents die of cholera in India, spoiled Mary Lennox is forced to go live with her mysterious uncle at Misselthwaite Manor in Yorkshire, England. Mary is not pleased with her new situation until she discovers the key to an unkempt garden, and begins to revive it with the help of a local boy named Dickon. Aided by Dickon and the discovery of the key, Mary’s stubborn nature begins to thaw with hope, warmth, and love.
[thb_tabs][thb_tab title=”Booking”]Each performance runs between 25 and 45 minutes and can be performed in venues as small as a classroom or as large as an auditorium. In conjunction with each performance, Book-It offers workshops for children and young adults to reinforce what they have seen. These workshops allow young people to make the leap between seeing art and creating it.
