The producing team behind The Mystery of Edwin Drood (Arts Theatre) and The Children of Eden Gala Concert (Prince of Wales Theatre), Aria Entertainment and Knockhardy Productions are delighted to announce that their concert revival of Lucy Simon and Marsha Norman's three times Tony Award winning musical The Secret Garden will transfer to the Greenwich Theatre for one night only as part of the Greenwich children's theatre festival following a successful run at The King's Head Theatre.
Described as an "unmissable, first class presentation of a musical that deservedly needed re-visiting" (Fourthwall Magazine), this new concert production is "very special and appeals to all ages" (West End Frame). The Secret Garden: In Concert is "a remarkable opportunity to hear an excellent musical delivered to an excellent standard" (The Public Reviews).
The "impressive" (British Theatre Guide) Alexander Evans, who was recently on Broadway in the US production of Masterclass, will continue his role as Archibald Craven. Rachael McCormick (Mrs Corny in Cameron Mackintosh's Oliver!) and Jordan Lee Davies (Into The Woods, St David's Hall) will play Martha and Dickon, respectively. The role of Lily will be played by the Zoe Curlett, whose previous credits include Cosette in LES MISERABLES and Christine in The Phantom of the Opera.
Zac Donovan, son of Jason Donavon, will play Colin Craven. The role of Mary Lennox will be played by the "phenomenally accomplished" (BackstagePass.com) Ana Martin.
Completing the cast are: Ross Barnes (A Winter's Tale : Landor Theatre), Robert Dalton (Save the Last Dance : UK Tour), Martin Dickinson (Jekyll & Hyde : UK Tour), Natalie Douglas (Steel Pier : Union Theatre), Wesley Dow (When Harry Met Barry : Above the Stag), Joanna Eliot (Let There Be : Riverside Studios), Fiona Finsbury (The Young Ones : Queen's Theatre Hornchurch), Mona Goodwin (Spring Awakening : Lyric Hammersmith & West End), Matthew Hendrickson (Feathers In The Snow : Southwark Playhouse), Matthew Ronchetti (A Winter's Tale : Landor Theatre) and Pippa Winslow (Old Goat Song: Lion & Unicorn).
