Father (Male, Baritone): The entity that creates universe. However, in this show the Father is not perfect. He gets frustrated as he watches his children continue to make mistakes (mistakes that he has made himself). This character is positive and relatable; he loves his children and wants them to be happy. And, like most parents, he makes mistakes as he strives to teach his children right and wrong. Range: G3-A5
Adam/Noah (Male, Tenor): Adam is Eve's bright and childlike partner. He is initially devout to Father and loving to his wife & children. Later plagued by guilt. Hard-working and reserved. Noah is rough but simple. He is unsophisticated and shrewd, but also warm and loyal. He builds the ark to save his family and honor Father. Range: A3-A5.
Eve/Mama Noah (Female, Mezzo-Soprano): Eve is curious and questioning, smart and excited. Chose an imperfect life of knowledge over a perfect life of innocence. Mama is Noah's wife and inherently motherly. She possesses a gentle strength, is reassuring, and serves as the mediator of the family. Range: G3-A5.
Abel/Ham (Male, Tenor): Kind, pure, and Cain's younger and more conservative brother who follows the “rules”. He chooses his parents over Cain. Ham is Japeth's middle brother and Aphra’s husband. He is not as docile as Japheth, nor as hot headed as Shem. Looks up to and follows Shem’s lead. Range: B3-G5.
Cain/Japeth (Male, Tenor): Cain is Abel's older, adventurous brother. Follows in his mother’s footsteps and longs for the companionship of other humans. He is strong, stubborn, and independent. Japeth is in love with Yonah and is willing to sacrifice his life to be with her. He is Noah's youngest son. Clever, rebellious, stubborn. Range: B3-A5.
Yonah (Female, Mezzo-Soprano): Soft and hard; smooth demeanor on the outside but maintains a undercurrent of grit (her life has not been easy or comfortable). She has a great amount of depth and capacity for love. She is willing to sacrifice her life for the future of the man she loves. Range: G3-G5
Seth/Shem (Male, Tenor): Seth: Adam and Eve's third son and their family's second chance at life. He is innocently adventurous. Shem: the oldest of Noah's three sons. Married to Aysha, he is impulsive, strong, and hot-tempered. Range: B3-E5
Aprah (Female, Alto): Ham's pregnant wife. Longs for the flood to be over and is constantly worrying. Range: B3-E5
Aysha (Female, Alto): Shem's wife. Cynically bitter and constantly accusing those aboard the ark. Range: B3-E5

About Children of Eden:
From musical theatre greats, Stephen Schwartz and John Caird, comes a joyous and inspirational musical about parents, children and faith... not to mention centuries of unresolved family business! An expansive and ambitious musical, the original production used a cast of sixty.
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."
Auditions for our next Shakespeare production will be held at the following days/times:
June 4 & 5 at 7pm
Director: Bill Green
Show Dates: September 9&10 and 15-17
About Shakespeare's The Comedy of Errors:
The Comedy of Errors tells the story of two sets of identical twins that were accidentally separated at birth. Antipholus of Syracuse and his servant, Dromio of Syracuse, arrive in Ephesus, which turns out to be the home of their twin brothers, Antipholus of Ephesus and his servant, Dromio of Ephesus. When the Syracusans encounter the friends and families of their twins, a series of wild mishaps based on mistaken identities lead to wrongful beatings, a near-seduction, the arrest of Antipholus of Ephesus, and false accusations of infidelity, theft, madness, and demonic possession.
Director's note: After a read-through and passing out scripts, we will take a few weeks off and begin rehearsals about July 3 for indoor and outdoor shows September 9, 10, 15, 16, and 17. Expect three rehearsals per week at times TBA based on actors' needs. We can arrange around a week's vacation during rehearsal--except for "tech week," the week before we open, when there will be more than three rehearsals. There are a wide variety of roles for all ages of adults and mature teens, and I am open to casting women in roles written as men. T
