Eastside Catholic has an upcoming spring musical, “Children of Eden!”
The show is loosely based on Genesis and covers the story of creation, with Adam, Eve, Cain and Abel, to Noah right after the flood.
Aside from the principal roles, the show features an incredible ensemble that functions as storytellers and help drive the plot.
The cast and crew have been working hard to make this a great show. Since rehearsals began in January, they have been rehearsing for hours every day after school, learning their music, practicing choreography and memorizing their lines. Members of the crew also have been working on building sets, designing costumes and finding props.
Opening night is March 21 at the Lyceum Theater at Skyline High School and runs through Sunday, with two shows on Saturday.
“It’s been an amazing experience seeing the story of creation come to life in a different way, and I’ve gotten to know so many great people throughout rehearsals,” singer and dancer senior Hannah Schlueter said. “I hope everyone comes to see the show!”
