A Co-Production with D.C.’s Shakespeare Theatre Company
A story of great love and great loss, great sadness and great joy.
A hauntingly beautiful musical, The Secret Garden is the celebrated tale of a young orphaned girl, sent to live with a reclusive uncle in a crumbling mansion overrun with spirits of the past. Called “smart and sensitive” and “blessedly grownup” with “a yearning magical pulse” by the Washington Post, this fantastical tale features stunning sets and costumes, a gorgeous score and rich, lush story-telling. This dark and mysterious gothic thriller brings to exuberant life a saga of deception, grief, jealousy, love and ultimately, rebirth.
With sun, water, earth and love, any seed can bloom…

"I shall see you in the garden, and spring will come and stay."
When 10-year-old Mary Lennox loses her parents to a cholera epidemic in the British Raj of India, she travels to England to stay with Archibald Craven, her remote and morose uncle, still grieving the death of his wife ten years ago. Terrified of every nook and cranny of the haunted Craven Manor on the Yorkshire Moors, Mary seeks refuge in her late aunt’s mysterious walled garden, where she discovers amazing secrets.
Marsha Norman and Lucy Simon’s Drama Desk and Tony Award®-winning musical based on the beloved children’s book, The Secret Garden is a story of hardship turned into hope, of beauty discovered in unlikely places, the power of the child’s imagination and the wisdom that accompanies growing up.

-DC Theatre Scene
"Brittany Baratz is quite strong as Mom...but what makes her memorable is her very strong and clear singing voice."
-MD Theater Guide
Singing since she's been a little girl, Brittany finds her joy in telling stories. From her hometown in Gaithersburg, MD to New York City and everywhere in between, her career has taken her to 46 out of 50 of the U.S. States and also abroad to the Spring of Culture Festival in Bahrain.
Highlights of her blossoming career include the pre-Broadway revival of The Secret Garden; working closely with American composer Robert Convery to bring his musical, Alice Adams, to life; four original works of theater with the John F. Kennedy Center's Theater for Young Audiences program; giving voice to Bernstein's Dinah in Trouble in Tahiti with the Grammy-nominated Inscape Chamber Orchestra; and working on some of her favorite musicals regionally such as A Little Night Music and Man of La Mancha.
Brittany holds a Bachelors of Music from the University of Maryland, a certificate from the intensive One-Year Acting Conservatory at T. Schreiber Studio in NYC, and studied abroad as a Young Artist with the Opera Music and Theater Festival of Lucca, Italy.
In addition to her artistic abilities, she holds a Bachelors in Marketing from the Robert H. Smith School of Business. In her spare time, she enjoys recording at her home studio, teaching herself how to play new instruments, and getting lost in a good book. She resides in New York City with her very talented husband, Michael.
