Audiences of all ages are invited to this year’s Homelinks theatrical production with two classic plays rolled in one engaging show: The Secret Garden and The Reluctant Dragon. Homelinks students aged 5-16 are bringing to life these two magical tales. In uniquely different ways these two stories both speak to the power of coming together with others and finding one’s true voice.
In The Secret Garden (based on Frances Hodgson Burnett’s well-known story published in 1911) two unhappy children, Mary and Collin, become transformed through bringing a secret garden back to life with the help of Dickon, a boy deeply connected with the natural world. This charming and hope-filled story tells of friendship, magic and new possibility.
The Reluctant Dragon (original story by Kenneth Grahame, 1898) is a dragon tale with a twist. An erudite and poetry-loving dragon is helped by a friendly family and is ultimately accepted by the bigger community. In the end, friendship and love win against fear and suspicion, just as we hope they do in real life!
Show times are Wed. Dec. 7 and Thurs. Dec. 8 at 4pm (approx. running time 1 hr. 40 min) at the Covenant Church (702 Stanley St., Nelson).
Admission is by donation.
