About the Shows:
Young Abe Lincoln
Make plans this summer to bring the remarkable story of a young Abraham Lincoln to life on stage. Set in the woods of his boyhood home at the picturesque Lincoln Amphitheatre, this special Encore edition of the 30th anniversary production of Young Abe Lincoln is a playful story chronicling the events that shaped our 16th president as he grew up in Southern Indiana. This heartwarming and adventurous musical is sure to be a great experience for everyone involved.
The Secret Garden
This enchanting classic of children’s literature is reimagined in brilliant musical style by composer Lucy Simon and Marsha Norman, the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright of ‘Night Mother. Orphaned in India, 11 year-old Mary Lennox returns to Yorkshire to live with her embittered, reclusive uncle Archibald and his invalid son Colin. The estate’s many wonders include a magic garden which beckons the children with haunting melodies and the “Dreamers”, spirits from Mary’s past who guide her through her new life, dramatizing The Secret Garden’s compelling tale of forgiveness and renewal.
