Secret Garden outback slant

Eileen Walder as Mrs Medlock and Olivia Carey-Foster as Martha.

After its sell-out success at the Anywhere Festival, The Secret Garden – An Australian Outback Story, will play at the Noosa Arts Theatre with 100 per cent of ticket sales raising funds for the drought crisis and to support farmers in need.

From the classic all-time favourite novel, The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett, comes a cleverly adapted for drama, Australian story about a 15 year-old orphan who leaves her comfortable existence in India to travel to her uncle’s outback cattle station in Queensland.

Red Robin Entertainment’s, producer Helena Wylie and writer-husband Roger Wylie, will bring back their play for a special encore performance with all ticket proceeds going to Drought Angels in honour of Queensland farmers.

“This is an uplifting and inspirational story that shows that anything is possible and never to underestimate the power of nature,” Helena said.

“The play features colourful adult and youth performers that will appeal to all ages, tackling matters of life including self-acceptance and friendship and brought together with bush poetry and music.

The play features well-known local actors Eileen Walder and Paul Southgate, aspiring young actors including Year 10 student Bianca Wylie in the lead role and Sam Conway from TV series Redfern Now.

Tickets cost $45 and $25 for concessions students under 18, pensioners and concession and groups of 10 or more and include complimentary light refreshments by way of a grazing table. Drinks will be available for purchase from the Noosa Arts Theatre.
