Front and Center for Performing Arts proudly presents, "Children of Eden.”  Music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz and a book by John Caird.

Based on the story of Genesis, the age-old conflict of parents and children takes the stage in this epic, heartfelt Stephen Schwartz musical. The Front & Center for Performing Arts cast contains over 60 students from neighboring towns led by Renee Celeste, Julie Lira, and Rodney Briscoe.   

“Although this is a lesser known show, Stephen Schwartz (composer of Wicked and many other musicals) considers this score his favorite!  The story speaks to us about family and what we pass on from one generation to the next.  It’s the perfect show to share with your own family!” – Renee Celeste.
