Music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz

Book by John Caird


From composer Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Godspell, Pippin, The Baker's Wife), and writer John Caird (Jane Eyre, the musical and co-director of Les Misérables (RSC)), the inspirational CHILDREN OF EDEN tells the story of Adam and Eve's journey from the Garden, the rivalry between Cain and Abel and concludes with the struggles faced by Noah and his family as they prepare for the devastating flood ahead of them.

CHILDREN OF EDEN was first seen on the West End stage in 1991 at the Prince Edward Theatre and, after an extensive re-write, enjoyed a highly successful revival (and cast recording) by the Paper Mill Playhouse, New Jersey, USA in 1998. Amazingly the show has never been seen on Broadway.

This show also happens to be Stephen Schwartz's favourite musical!


There is demand for a large cast and ensemble featuring a wide range of musical styles from contemporary musical theatre to gospel, African music to lounge jazz and popular ballads. Auditions will be open to all YESOS members aged 8 to 21 years.
