Towne & Country Players Issue a BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!

What does the orphan of “Annie”, the exotic location of “The King & I”, the beastly scares of “Beauty and the Beast” and the soaring musical scores of “Miss Saigon” or “Les Miserable” have in common? They are all rolled into the 1991 Tony nominated Broadway hit, “The Secret Garden”.

Why should we care? Because Towne & Country Players is excited to announce that this magnificent, family musical based on the 1911 children’s classic, of the same name by Frances Hodgson Burnett, will official open for community theatre, the new Versailles Performing Arts Center.
