Schrag takes lead role in college musical

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.
