The winner of three Tony Awards (including Best Book of a Musical), the show is based on the 1911 novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett. Set in the early years of the 20th century, Mary Lennox, a young English girl born and raised in the British Raj, is orphaned by a cholera outbreak when she is eleven years old. She is sent away from India to Yorkshire, England, to live with relatives whom she has never met. Her own personality blossoms as she and a young gardener bring new life to a neglected garden, as well as to her sickly cousin and uncle.

Highway of Tears (Opening Night Film)
Director: Matthew Smiley

The film is about the missing or murdered women along a 724 kilometre stretch of highway in northern British Columbia. None of the 18 cold-cases had been solved since 1969, until a special division of the RCMP managed to link DNA to Portland drifter, Bobby Jack Fowler with the 1974 murder of 16 year-old hitchhiker, Collen MacMillen. Now find out what First Nation leaders are doing to try and swing the pendulum in the other direction.
