The California Youth Conservatory (CYC), three-time winner of the San Diego A-List Award for “Best Theatre Group”, and recent recipient of the Bravo San Diego Award for “Best Musical” for their summer production of Les Misérables, will present The Secret Garden, A Musical at the Joan B. Kroc Theatre in San Diego from March 1st – 15th. The show is based on the famed novel by Francis Hodgson Burnett, with Tony Award-winning lyrics by Marsha Norman and music by Grammy Award winner Lucy Simon. This production is produced and directed by the award-winning founder and Artistic Director of CYC Theatre, Shaun T. Evans.

Hailed by professional actors and critics alike, the award-winning CYC Theatre is an innovative new company formed to offer real-world, professional training to aspiring young performers. Under the direction of veteran Actor/Director Shaun T. Evans, the company is the only such young-performer’s training theatre to use professional actors as teaching artists and mentors for its students — and the only youth group to regularly employ Equity actors. Evans pioneered this mentor-based training model for young performers here in San Diego. This group has been voted “Best Theatre Group” on the San Diego A-List poll for the last 3 consecutive years, and more recently won a Bravo San Diego “Best Musical” award (presented by the San Diego Performing Arts League and the County of San Diego) for its summer production of Les Miserables at the Lyceum Theatre.
