Coming Soon: Dexter’s Encore Theatre presents ‘The Secret Garden’ Nov. 14-Dec. 22

The Encore Musical Theatre Company proudly presents The Secret Garden, running Nov. 14 through Dec. 22 2019. The Secret Garden is directed and choreographed by Cami Glauser, and music directed by Tyler Driskill and R. Mackenzie Lewis.

Orphaned in India, young Mary Lennox journey’s to Yorkshire, England with her embittered uncle Archibald and his sheltered son, Colin. This beloved tale comes to life onstage through a hauntingly beautiful score that helps the inhabitants of the estate and the “Dreamers” – spirits from Mary’s past – navigate this journey of rediscovery, faith, and love. Notable songs include “Lily’s Eyes,” “The Girl I Mean to Be,” and “How Could I Ever Know.”
