‘Children of Eden’ at The Dramateurs, Inc through July 1

Opening on June 16 at The Dramateurs, Inc is the musical, “Children of Eden” with book by John Caird, music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, based on a concept by Charles Lisanby. Performances continue through July 1

“Children of Eden” casts the beloved biblical stories of Genesis through the personal lens of family. The musical starts with the very beginning: the creation of the universe. “Father” breathes life into his children, Adam and Eve, and learns that the hardest part of being a loving Father is letting go. It’s a lesson that translates into the parenting of Cain, Abel, and Seth and is reiterated once again as Noah parents his sons Shem, Ham, and Japheth.
This joyous and inspiring musical celebrates the difficulty of choice, the importance of passion, the value of questioning, and the pain in allowing those you love to take risks and face the consequences.
