The show is a vibrant feast for the eyes, taking the audience on a mystical whirlwind adventure as they discover the secrets of a mysterious hidden garden.

A talented cast of 23 performers tells the story of orphaned Mary Lennox, who finds herself living in her cruel uncle’s manor. Alone and frightened, yet stubborn as ever, she explores the grounds and discovers a magical secret garden. She is joined on her adventure by Dickon, a boy who talks to animals, and her sickly cousin Colin, who matches her stubbornness and grumpy manner.

This lavish production contains all the ingredients of a magical theatrical adventure, with gorgeous puppets, enormous sets, vibrant choreography and a heart-warming story performed by a stellar cast at the centre of it all.

“The Secret Garden” is the must-see family outing in Cape Town’s vibrant summer entertainment catalogue. Experience the wonder of this tale as never seen before.
