MTG Holds Auditions for The Secret Garden

Menomonie Theater Guild proudly announces auditions for The Secret Garden, directed by Leslie Norris.

The Secret Garden is a musical based on the 1911 novel of the same name. When Mary Lennox, a 10-year-old English girl born and raised in the British Raj, is orphaned by a cholera outbreak, she is sent away from India to Yorkshire, England, to live with relatives whom she has never met. Her own personality blossoms as she and a young gardener bring new life to a neglected garden, as well as to her sickly cousin and uncle.
