Based on the story of Genesis, Children of Eden is a frank, heartfelt and often humorous examination of the age-old conflict between parents and children. Adam, Eve, Noah and the “Father” who created them deal with the headstrong, cataclysmic actions of their respective children. The show ultimately delivers a bittersweet but inspiring message: that “the hardest part of love… is letting go.”

Children of Eden is the story of the creation as told through the eyes of our narrators, The Storytellers. It tells of Adam and Eve and their relationship with Father (God) and their ultimate expulsion from the Garden of Eden. The story continues through the births of Cain and Abel and that historic battle. The second act takes place generations later with Noah and his family, and their challenges in building the Ark and obeying Father’s will.

The music and lyrics are written by Stephen Schwartz. Famed composer/lyricist of Godspell, Pippin, Wicked, Working, and Rags.
Book by John Caird
Based on a concept by Charles Lisanby

Produced by 2nd Star Productions
Directed/Choreographed by Vincent Musgrave
