The Secret Garden
Captivated by the music and compelled by the story, director Kathryn Little is delighted to take on the spellbinding musical drama “The Secret Garden” as the culminating stage production for SCERA’s national award-winning high school company, Acting Up. Forty high school students, who had to audition to be accepted into Acting Up, will present the Tony Award-winning show that is based on the classic piece of literature by Frances Hodgson Burnett. Reimagined brilliantly by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwrights Lucy Simon and Marsha Norman, “The Secret Garden” will play at SCERA Center for the Arts in Orem March 20-28 @ 7:30pm (daily except Tuesday 3/24). Reserved-seat tickets are $8 for adults and $6 for children (age 3-11) and seniors (age 65 and older), and are available at www.scera.org, by calling (801) 225-ARTS, or at the main office at SCERA Center, 745 South State, Orem, open 10am-6pm weekdays and 12Noon-6pm Saturdays. “The musical catches the essence of the book so well,” Little says. “It is lovely to see rich elements of spirituality as forces that lead two children toward finding the love of a family.” She particularly likes the themes of heaven on earth, Indian magic on the side of the children, and many other forces that come together to bless these children and bless a father who has been dysfunctional as a parent. “The Secret Garden” tells the story of unruly 11-year-old orphan Mary Lennox who comes to live with her embittered, reclusive Uncle Archibald and his invalid son Colin. The estate has many wonders, including a magical secret garden that has been left to grow wild. The garden becomes metaphor for renewal, forgiveness and redemption, with spirits from Mary’s past who guide her through her new life. Mary is the catalyst for changing the lives of all the people around her as well as her own life. A brat in the beginning whose late mother wanted nothing to do with a baby, she has become a difficult, demanding charge for her servants. Colin, also ignored, is also challenging, but the two meet their match in each other and learn their lives can be quite wonderful. “I am a gardener myself,” Little says, “and as I work in my yard and in my house I have listened to the music and become immersed in the loveliness of this story.” While all the Acting UP students will be in the play, several are taking lead parts and include Sarah Carr as Lily Craven, Skyler Kawai as Archibald Craven, Jethro Davis as Neville Craven, Zachary Thorn as Colin, Abby Garner as Mary Lennox, and Dresden Means as Dickon Sowerby. Shawn Mortensen has designed the set with a garden that is going to be a beautiful array of flowers and topiaries. As a secret garden, it is also designed to have passageways for the performers to go through, with the result being a wonderful playground. Little is music director with assistance from Andrew Walsh, and Brodee Ripple is the choreographer and costume designer. Elizabeth Griffiths is light designer. Acting Up recently returned from the Musical Theatre Competition of America in California, where they competed against school from all over the country. They came in second place overall and several of the students received first place in individual events.

Festival of Colors
In India Holi announces the arrival of spring and the passing of winter. It is a festival that breathes an atmosphere of social merriment. People bury their hatchets with a warm embrace and throw their worries to the wind. Every nook and corner presents a typically colorful sight. Young and old alike are covered with colors (red, green, yellow, blue, black and silver). People in small groups are seen singing, dancing and throwing colors on each other. Colors are thrown every 2 hours. There will be musical interludes, the lighting of a bonfire, burning of an effigy, and the throwing of dry colors on friends and foe alike. The dry powders supplied by the temple are non stain, but still guests are cautioned not to wear their "Saturday Best." Take Spanish Fork exit 257 and look for parking signs. Shuttles buses will run from parking areas at Spanish Fork Fair Grounds, SF Sport Complex, and Salem Hills High School. There is a $2 fee to ride the shuttle. Photos by Paul Nash.
Geocache Treasure Hunt a…
Geocaching is a high-tech treasure hunt using a global positioning satellite (GPS) unit. Camp Floyd State Park hosts a geocache treasure hunt locating various historic sites within in the park. Visitors who complete the treasure hunt will be awarded a prize. Participants are encouraged to bring their own GPS units. However, Camp Floyd State Park will have GPS units to loan and assist with the coordinates. Participants will be given the coordinates to the first cache and each subsequent cache will provide the next. The geocache treasure hunt is included with paid museum admission of $3 per person, or $9 per family. Camp Floyd was established in 1858 to quell a Mormon rebellion, which never took place. Soldiers were stationed here until they were recalled to the Civil War in 1861. Today, the park and museum tells the story of this historic event. Camp Floyd State Park is located in the town of Fairfield, 22 miles southwest of Lehi on Highway 73. The park and museum are open Monday – Saturday from 9a.m. to 5p.m.
