Campbellsville University to present ‘The Secret Garden’ musical July 4-7 in Russ Mobley Theater


While observing the Fourth of July next week, Campbellsville University has another way to also celebrate the national holiday.

“The Secret Garden” musical will be presented by the Campbellsville University Theater Department, Town Hall Productions and Community Trust Bank, and run from July 4 until July 7 in the Russ Mobley Theater, 114 University Drive, Campbellsville, Ky. The play is a musical based on the novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett.

The story is set in the early 20th century and is about Mary Lennox, a young English girl born and raised in the British Raj. She is orphaned at age 10 and sent away from India to Yorkshire, England, to live with relatives whom she has never met. Her own personality blossoms as she and a young gardener bring new life to a neglected garden, as well as to her sickly cousin and uncle. The play synopsis is from Bard.org.

Tickets can be purchased before the event online at townhallpro2013.ticketleap.com or through email at townhallpro.boxoffice@gmail.com. Online ticket sales end at noon the day of the presentation. Afterward, tickets can be reserved at (270) 789-5266 or purchased at the door.

General admission tickets are $10, while tickets for seniors (65 and under), children (12 and under) and CU employees/students and military are $7.

The play is scheduled for July 4 at 6 p.m.; July 5 at 7 p.m.; July 6 at 7 p.m.; and July 7 at 2:30 p.m.
