"High on a hill sits a big old house with something wrong inside it." This is gloomy Misselthwaite Manor, where poor Mary Lennox, recently orphaned in India by the cholera epidemic of 1906, must now live. With only ghosts for playmates she sets out to unlock the secrets of both garden and hall. Along the way she discovers an unknown cousin, a magical boy who talks with animals, and the healing power of nature.
With a soaring, glorious score the story is told.
