Nearly 2000 elementary school students were able to see a free performance of The Secret Garden with tickets underwritten by The Sarasota Ballet made possible by The Education Foundation of Sarasota County and Harry Leopold and Audrey Robbins. The grant award of $7,500 from Education Foundation was essential to provide field trip transportation enabling students to be the first to experience Will Tuckett’s full-length family friendly ballet The Secret Garden at the FSU Center for the Performing Arts before it opened the 2017-2018 Season. Tuckett’s unique ability to tell complex stories through his choreography has been recognized throughout the world, most recently when he received London’s West End Olivier Award for his production of The Wind in the Willows. With The Secret Garden, Tuckett’s distinctive theatricality comes through on stage, bringing to life this beautiful story of love, nature and family.
