“Children of Eden” The Musical


Academy Award winning composer, Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Godspell, Disney’s Pocahontas) and Tony and Olivier Award winning director, John Caird (Les Misérables), alongside a top notch artistic team, will be mounting a new production of a musical theatre favorite on the Arcada stage. Freely based on the Biblical book of Genesis, the show titled Children of Eden, with book and score by Caird and Schwartz, respectively, provides a unique telling of the story of creation through the epic of Noah and the flood. With a frank, heartfelt, and humorous examination of the age-old relationship between parent and child, Children of Eden, provides a timeless story for the entire family to enjoy. With musical theatre hits such as Lost in the Wilderness, Spark of Creation, and Ain’t it Good, this is Schwartz’s work at its best! Scheduled to open for a special three-performance engagement in September 2021 at the historic Arcada Theatre, you don’t want to miss what’s sure to be the theatrical event of the year. The production will feature Multi-platnium R&B star, DEBORAH COX, Tony nominee, NORM LEWIS, America’s Got Talent’s BRIAN JUSTIN CRUM, and more. 

 Groups of 10+ are now available by emailing groups@chicagolandtheatrefund.com. Individual tickets, if available, will be released at later-to-be-announced date. Additional information can be found at www.childrenofedenthemusical.com.
