The King’s-Edgehill School and Quick As A Wink Theatre Society’s mesmerizing co-production of The Secret Garden takes the stage at the Windsor-based school’s Fountain Performing Arts Centre June 6 at 7:30 p.m., and June 7 at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. The musical, based on a novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett, follows young Mary Lennox’s (Rachel Bobbit) move from India, where she was orphaned, to an estate in England owned by her grieving uncle, Archibald Craven (Alan Slipp). Director Toven MacLean said The Secret Garden showcases the powers of generosity, compassion and friendship. “It is a tribute to the human spirit; a tale of loss and rejuvenation that is a feast for the eyes, the ears and, most importantly, for the heart,” wrote MacLean, in the director’s notes.
