'Secret Garden' Scheduled
Stage Right's Professional Theatre Company will stage the Tony Award-winning musical "The Secret Garden" at the Greensburg Garden & Civic Center this weekend.
The production, based on the novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett, features Tony Marino as Archibald Craven, with three girls in the role of 10-year-old Mary Lennox; Grace Rusnica of Irwin and Julia Boyle and Carolyn Jerz of Greensburg.
The story centers on lonely Mary, who is sent to live with her Uncle Archibald after being orphaned. There's a dark shadow over the manor until she discovers a secret garden that belonged to the late Mrs. Craven.
Shows are 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday; and 2 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $22; $18 students; 724-836-8000; www.stagerightgreensburg.com.
The Carnegie Mellon School of Drama presents "A Conversation With Dagmara Dominczyk" from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. Friday, in the Rauh Theater at CMU. The CMU alumna and actress's novel, "The Lullaby of Polish Girls," is loosely based on her youth in Poland.
Ms. Domincyzk, most recently on Broadway in the revival of "Golden Boy," was inspired to write by her family history. Her father, a founding member of the workers union Solidarity in Poland, was imprisoned in 1981. Her family was deported to the United States in 1982, arriving with only two suitcases in hand. "Lullaby" chronicles some of that history and focuses on the friendship of three women and a murder that reunites them. The New York Times called the book " 'Girls' With a Polish accent." The event is free and open to the public.
