Children of Eden is a show based off of stories found in the Book of Genesis. The first act is based on the Garden of Eden and Cain and Abel stories, while the second act is a twist on Noah’s Ark.

Often, this show is played as a biblical production, but not this one. Though the stories remain based on bible stories, these characters are used more to present themes of intellectual independence, family relationships, rebelliousness and free will. This story is created by a chorus of Storytellers who, along with a principle cast, create the stories through musical numbers ranging from the jazzy and sassy, to heartfelt and poignant all the way to giant dance numbers.

This show has something for everyone!!

To buy your tickets for this production visit: www.ticketsource.co.uk/cecilian

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Children of Eden are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
