2020 Perform! – Children Of Eden

Children of Eden was originally written in 1989 as Family Tree for a production by Youth Sing Praise. Award winning Stephen Schwartz adapted the script and music of Family Tree into a full-length musical, giving it the title it uses today. Children of Eden is a two-act musical based on the Book of Genesis, with Act I telling the story of Adam and Eve, Cain, an Abel, while Act II deals with Noah and the Flood. It’s universal themes of family and love, as well as brilliant music will be brought to life by two full cast of performers in grades 1 -12.
Rehearsal will be on Saturdays and Sundays, beginning January 11th. Leads will begin rehearsal prior to January 11th. This exciting program is directed and choreographed by Marie Jagger-Taylor, with vocal direction by Christine Smith.
