Actors’ Theatre of Columbus and Columbus Children’s Theatre Presents:

The Secret Garden

August 12- September 5, 2021

Thursdays through Sundays @ 8pm
Schiller Park (German Village), Amphitheatre Stage

An orphan girl is sent away from the only home she’s ever known into a world that seems to be decaying in front of her eyes. A boy who has been hidden away and believes himself to be incapable of a real life is challenged to grow in ways he never expected. A long-neglected sanctuary is rediscovered, sowing seeds of life and hope that blossom from the weeds and wreck of everything the children had once expected.

Adapted for the stage by Neil Duffield
Directed by Philip J. Hickman
