TEEN CONSERVATORY AUDITIONS

Teens 13-18 years old may audition for the Summer 2018 Teen Conservatory, running July 9 – August 3, 2018. In this pre-professional musical theatre program, selected students will take master classes and rehearse and perform the Tony Award-winning musical The Secret Garden, directed by Gulfshore Playhouse Associate Artistic Director and Broadway star Jeffrey Binder (The Lion King, Mary Poppins.)

Frances Hodgson Burnett’s masterpiece about love and redemption comes to life in this Tony Award-winning musical. When lonely orphan Mary Lennox goes to live with her reclusive uncle in his chilly Yorkshire manor, she discovers the key to a lost garden and unlocks the secrets of the household. With its haunting music and unforgettable characters, The Secret Garden is a timeless tale about the friends we find, the family we create, and the courage to heal a broken heart.
