Two missed rehearsal days due to cold weather this week caused a scramble for Kettle Moraine School for Arts and Performance (KM Perform) as students prepare for their second annual musical, a Broadway adaptation of Francis Hodgson Burnett’s literary classic “The Secret Garden.” Performances are at 7 p.m. Jan. 31 and Feb. 1 and 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 2, at the Kettle Moraine High School auditorium.
The story follows 11-year-old Mary Lennox, orphaned in India, as she returns to Yorkshire to live with her embittered, reclusive Uncle Archibald and his invalid son, Colin. The estate’s many wonders include a garden of the show’s title, the friendship of local Yorkshire youth Martha and Dickon, and the guidance of “Dreamers,” spirits from Mary’s past, who lead her to a new life and dramatize the Secret Garden’s compelling tale.
The show is appropriate for all ages and not exclusively for children, although it is based on a novel written for children. Tickets are $8 at the door for students and seniors, $10 for adults. More information is available online.
