The show uses its Act One to tell the story of Adam, Eve, Cain and Abel. In the second Act, we visit Noah and learn all about the flood. It's a great story of generations and relationships of family. The show chooses to cast God as "Father", interacting among his "children" in the early stages of planning his great wonderful world. It's when we get in our own way that things get interesting. And no one seems immune. Not even, in this show, "father."
At church we are in a series called "Love at Last Sight", and it's all about making changes in our relationships to make love last - certainly a lesson that this show communicates.
This past weekend, Epic Theatre Company opened our production of the musical, to a standing ovation on the first performance! It runs one more weekend, with three more shows only! You can see the show on:

Don't miss it! Click on any one of the dates above to reserve tickets in advance (which isn't a bad idea to make sure you get a seat - after great word of mouth, I suspect that we will be filling the gymnatorasium with lots of Children of Eden fans! (Including my parents, as four of their five grandchildren are in the show!)
Here is a video preview: a segment from the song that closes Act One, "Children of Eden." Get your tickets today!
