Children Of Eden

Children Of Eden
Based on the story of Genesis, the age-old conflict of parents and children takes the stage in this epic, heartfelt Stephen Schwartz musical.

From musical theatre greats Stephen Schwartz and John Caird comes a joyous and inspirational musical about parents, children and faith... not to mention centuries of unresolved family business! An expansive and ambitious musical, the original production used a cast of sixty.

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."

A large cast is needed to take on the story of the Old Testament in this moving, foot-stomping musical. Children of Eden is a wonderful show for faith based groups looking for a large-scaled pageant with sweeping music.
