Under direction of Betsy Hauck, the Performing Arts Department at Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School has been working hard for weeks, readying their winter musical, “The Secret Garden,” a musical based on the children’s classic book by Frances Hodgson Burnett. See the troupe perform this Thursday and Friday, Feb. 14 and 15, at 7 pm, and Saturday, Feb. 16, at 4 pm.

For the first time, the Massachusetts Education Theater will be adjudicating the show for inclusion into a new awards program for musicals. Peter Boak is the guest pianist, along with Jan Wightman and several other community members.
