This enchanting tale of transformation from darkness to light in the orphaned Mary, the widowed Archibald, and the sickly Colin touches the heart and promises hope to those who believe that “if you look the right way, you can see that the whole world is a garden” just waiting to bloom. A charming tale, enhanced by a remarkably beautiful score, The Secret Garden plants the seeds of a magical message that lingers long after one exits the theatre and is the perfect treat for the whole family!

Prelude to a Kiss

Written by Craig Lucas

The sacred vow “for better or worse, in sickness and in health” is taken by over 2 million couples in the United States each year. In this Tony nominated play when the nuptial kiss is followed by a kiss from an older gentleman and the second kiss results in the young bride and the old man exchanging souls, a bit of chaos infused with poignant irony tests the commitment of the newlyweds. An exploration of love, its fragility and its splendor, Prelude to a Kiss transcends the borders of a romance and questions the durability of love in the face of inevitable physical decay.
