Acting Up Young Performers’ Community Theater of Mason presents “Children of Eden,” a joyous and inspirational musical about parents, children and faith… not to mention centuries of unresolved family business.
The story of Adam and Eve and Noah’s Ark will be staged Friday through Sunday at the Mason High School Theater, 6100 Mason-Montgomery Road.
With a soaring score by Stephen Schwartz (”Wicked,” “Pippin,” “Godspell”) and a book by John Caird (”Les Mis”), “Children of Eden” is freely based on the story of Genesis. It is a frank, heartfelt and often humorous examination of the age-old conflict between parents and children. 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.”
Acting Up’s version of “Children of Eden” features storytellers and pairs of animals comprised of 75 talented young performers ages 6 to 18 from the Greater Cincinnati area, including Mason natives Brandon Cole (Adam) and Dane Morey (Noah) and Fort Thomas residents Savannah Slaby (Eve) and Rachel Zimmerman (Mama Noah). Also featuring Gabe Hoyer of Symmes Township as “Father.”
