Julianna Schrag, 11, of Goessel will play Mary Lennox in the Bethel College Fall Festival theater production of “The Secret Garden” next weekend.
Schrag joins a cast of college students who will perform the musical by Francis Hodgson Burnett three times, 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 12, 3:30 p.m. on Oct. 13, and 2 p.m. on Oct. 14, at Krehbiel Auditorium in the Fine Arts Center.
The story is set in the early 1900s. After a cholera outbreak in colonial India, newly orphaned 11-year-old Lennox is sent to England and her only living relatives, a reclusive uncle and his invalid son.
Austin Unruh of Goessel, a senior at Bethel, is also part of the cast.
Tickets are available at Thresher Bookstore or at the Fine Arts Center ticket office starting one hour before the performance.
