The Santa Monica Theatre Guild at the Morgan-Wixson Theatre is presenting The Secret Garden, with the book and lyrics by Marsha Norman and music by Lucy Simon, beginning Saturday, March 14th through April 11th.

Based on the children’s story by Frances Hodgson Burnett, the Tony Award-winning musical tells the story of a young girl’s journey to England and the discovery of a hidden garden. Her encounter sheds light on hope when she brings the garden and those around her back to life, and proves that through adverse situations, we often find possibility and life renewed, a theater spokesman said.

The cast includes Nicole Cline, Amy Coles, Jason Coosner, Quinn D’Andrea, Wyn Delano, Ryland Dodge, David Emeson, Maralyn Facey, Melissa Falarski, Lena Foellmer, Larry Gesling, David Herley, Jeannie Hudall, Aaron Jacobs, Dylan La Rocque, Tara McGrath, Nick Mead, Lauren Pardini, Lyndie Renee, Holley Replogle-Wong, JP Sarro, Felix Sotelo and Brandon Stanford.

The Secret Garden is directed by Anne Gesling and produced by Adrienne Breslow and Deb Verla. Tickets are $23 for general admission and $18 for seniors and students (group discounts are available). Tickets may be purchased by calling the box office at (310) 828-7519, or

The Morgan-Wixson Theatre is at 2627 Pico Blvd., Santa Monica.
