“It’s time for Elitch’s to have its second act and for Elitch Theatre to get back to its legacy as a theatre venue,” said Greg Rowley, president of the Historic Elitch Theatre Foundation.

Historic Elitch Theater

 “Following the first Elitch Encore production about Helen Bonfils — where we celebrate her dedication to the theatre — it seemed appropriate to stage a production about the revival of a magical world. While we work to revive the magical space of the Historic Elitch Theatre, we work to create a space that fosters hope, creativity, and renewal” says Roberta Hamilton-Griggs, HET Board Member.

The Secret Garden

This enchanting classic of children’s literature is reimagined in brilliant musical style by composer Lucy Simon and Marsha Norman, the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright of ‘Night Mother. Orphaned in India, 11-year-old Mary Lennox returns to Yorkshire to live with her embittered, reclusive uncle Archibald and his disabled son Colin. The estate’s many wonders include a magic garden which beckons the children with haunting melodies and the “Dreamers,” spirits from Mary’s past who guide her through her new life, dramatizing The Secret Garden‘s compelling tale of forgiveness and renewal.
