"Don't miss this amazing family entertainment."
Based on Frances Hodgson
Burnett’s beloved children’s book, this musical is about people
finding themselves. Mary, a twelve-year-old whose parents have died of
cholera in India, comes to England to live with her Uncle Archibald. The
uncle’s son Colin is an invalid who has never left his bedroom.
A myriad of characters also live in the house and tend the garden, but
the best moments are saved for the Archibald’s late wife Lily, whose
spirit calls to everyone to visit “The Secret Garden.” Mary
convinces Colin to visit the garden with her. He is healed of his illnesses.
At the story’s conclusion, Mary finds a new family, Colin finds
his father and his health, and Archibald finds happiness and fulfillment.
Some of the major songs are “How Could I Ever Know” and “In
story was brought to the screen in a 1954 film starring Howard Keel &
Jane Powell. Set in 1850 Oregon, Adam Pontipee, the eldest of seven brothers,
goes to town to get a wife. Finding Milly working in a restaurant, he
convinces her to marry him. When they arrive at his backwoods cabin, she
discovers that Adam has six brothers—all living in his cabin. Milly
sets out to reform the siblings, who are anxious to get girls of their
own. At the town social, each brother finds a girl, but a dance challenge
with the boys from town leads to a brawl. Back at the farm, when Adam
realizes all the brothers are in love, he offers an inspired solution
— kidnap the girls. The brothers do indeed kidnap their girls and
an avalanche blocks their pursuers. An angry Milly bars the men from the
house until the girls can be taken back to town when the snow thaws. Frustrated,
Adam goes to a hunting cabin for the winter, unaware that Milly is pregnant.
By spring, the couples are together and in love. Confusion over Adam’s
return, the arrival of men from town, and a cry from Milly’s baby
leads to a shotgun wedding. Songs include “Bless Your Beautiful
Hide”, “Sobbin’ Women”, “Lonesome Polecat”,
and “Love Never Goes Away".

Sound of Music
Maria, a postulant
at Nonnberg Abbey in Salzburg, Austria, is too free-spirited to accept
the discipline of the order and frequently escapes to the mountains. Thus,
the Mother Abbess arranges for Maria to work as a governess for Captain
George Von Trapp—a widower with seven children. By adding music
and outdoor expeditions to the children's normally rigorous schedule,
Maria wins the children's hearts. Although Captain Von Trapp is engaged
to an elegant socialite, Von Trapp falls in love with Maria and marries
her. But it is 1938, and the family’s life is disrupted by Nazi
Germany's annexation of Austria. Well-known as an amateur singing group,
the family uses an appearance at a local contest to escape Austria and
cross the mountains on foot to Switzerland. Familiar songs
include “The Sound of Music", "My Favorite Things",
"Climb Ev'ry Mountain", "Do-Re-Mi", and "Edelweiss."
