Stage Door Productions, in partnership with the Fredericksburg United Methodist Church (FUMC), will present Children of Eden, a musical from the creator of Wicked and Godspell.
Stephen Schwartz's joyous and inspirational musical is loosely based on the book of Genesis. 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."
Children of Eden is directed by Olivia Finnegan with music direction from Paul Beaulieu and choreography by Megan Marshall. The large cast features actors of all ages from youth through adult.
Children of Eden will be on stage in Kobler Hall at FUMC, 308 Hanover Street, July 28-29 and August 4 at 7:30 p.m. and July 29 and August 5 at 2:00 p.m.
Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for students and are available at www.stagedoorproductions.org/Tickets/ or at the door prior to each performance. Space is limited, so advanced ticket purchase is recommended. The parking lot at FUMC is located off Charlotte Street with additional street parking also available.
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 occur.
