The program committee of the Freeman Academy Auxiliary has announced that “Children of Eden” will be presented as the 2014 Schmeckfest musical production. Tim L. Waltner will direct the production as part of the 56th Schmeckfest, which will be held March 21-22, 28-29.
“Children of Eden” is a two-act musical with music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz and book by John Caird. The musical is based on two familiar stories from the book of Genesis. Act I tells the story of Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel. Act II tells the story of Noah and the flood.
“Children of Eden” has been described as “A joyous and inspirational musical about the age-old conflict between parents and children. Adam, Eve, Noah and the “Father” who created them deal with the headstrong actions of their respective children. The show ultimately delivers a bittersweet but inspiring message that “the hardest part of love... is letting go.”
This is the eighth Schmeckfest production Waltner is directing; he has been involved as either director, actor or on the technical side of 37 previous Schmeckfest productions.
