Children Of Eden

May 4–20, 2018

The Ellicott Creek Playhouse


Book by John Caird
Music and Lyrics by Stephen Schwartz

From the composer who brought us "Godspell," "Pippin", and "Wicked", NRTG is proud to close it's 2017-2018 season with Stephen Schwartz's musical "Children of Eden."  This year's actor's choice selection, "Children of Eden" is a musical based on the story of Genesis. It is a joyous, inspirational tale of Adam, Eve, Noah, and the Father who created them, dealing with themes including parents, family, and faith. The show delivers the ultimately bittersweet theme that "the hardest part of love....is the letting go".

Directed by Fran Newton
Choreographed by Dawn Marcolini Newton
