Jared Watson directs Children of Eden for Shreveport Little Theater at Marjorie Lyons Playhouse, opens Th, July 23, 8 pm

CHILDREN OF EDEN, produced by Shreveport Little Theatre & Academy, is aimed at families. This popular musical features a book by John Caird (LES MISERABLES), and a score by Academy Award winning writer Stephen Schwartz (the composer of WICKED, GODSPELL, and PIPPIN, among many film credits), says Robert Darrow.

It is a musical freely based on the story of Genesis, both the Creation Story and Noah’s Ark. It is about parents, children, and faith... not to mention centuries of unresolved family business! Adam, Eve, Noah and the Father who created them deal with the headstrong actions of their respective children. Through many songs, the show delivers a message about second chances and learning from past mistakes.
