Auditions for the Musical,  CHILDREN OF EDEN, are the week of December 1. 

PLOT SUMMARY:  Based on the story of Genesis, the age-old conflict of parents and children takes the stage in this epic, heartfelt. From musical theatre genius Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin, & Godspell) comes a joyous and inspirational musical about parents, children and faith... not to mention centuries of unresolved family business! Children of Eden is a show about parenthood and the impossible idea that every child will eventually leave home and become a parent in their own time, a cycle that never ends: As 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."
