In collaboration with Santa Barbara public libraries, the State Street Ballet will present dance excerpts by choreographer Josie Walsh from The Secret Garden based on the novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett.

Dancers will include Season Winquest as Mary Lennox, Ryan Camou as Dicken, Michael Waldrop as Archibald and Angela Rebelo as Lilias.

Performances will be held at 10:30 a.m. Feb. 7 at the Central Library, 40 E. Anapamu St. in Santa Barbara, and 10:30 a.m. Feb. 9 at the Goleta Library, 500 N. Fairview Ave.

This is an opportunity for students and adults to learn the “secrets” behind The Secret Garden. This 40-minute program will include dance by State Street Ballet soloists along with readings from the original story in between the dance segments.

This free event will finish with an interactive session where those in attendance may ask questions of dancers and technical staff, including the costume designers.

This will be of interest to students from art/drama/dance classes or other. Parents, bring your children to experience this “mini glimpse” into the magical production of The Secret Garden, which will be held at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 25 and 2 p.m. Feb. 26 at the Granada Theatre.

Tickets for the full production are available at the Granada, 805.899.2222 or www.granadasb.org.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
