The Sautee Nacoochee Center is joining Serenbe Playhouse to bring “The Secret Garden” to the Sautee Nacoochee Community Center Theatre.

The story centers on a bitter young girl named Mary Lennox, who loses her self-indulging parents in an earthquake and is sent to live in England with her reclusive uncle. Eventually she discovers her bedridden cousin and a secret garden that once belonged to her deceased aunt. With the help of her cousin, the kindly Dickon and a little “magic,” Mary looks for a way to bring love back to her family.

Serenbe Playhouse was founded in 2009 under the executive and artistic direction of Brian Clowdus, an accomplished actor, educator, director and producer. Its performances reduce barriers between artists and audiences by immersing patrons in an environment that amplifies the beauty of nature and provides opportunities for engagement, conversation and collaboration. The Serenbe community was created to protect the rural land outside of Atlanta known as Chattahoochee Hill Country. The first house at Serenbe was built in 2004 and today the community is home to over 400 residents.

“The Secret Garden” will be performed at 7:30 p.m. March 12 and 2 p.m. March 13 at the Sautee Nacoochee Center, 283 Ga. 255 North, Sautee Nacoochee.

Tickets are $15 for members, $18 for nonmembers and $6 for children 16 and younger.
