‘Children of Eden’ to be performed this weekend in Nashua

Thursday, December 5, 2013

NASHUA – From Stephen Schwartz and John Caird comes a joyous and inspirational musical about parents, children and faith … not to mention centuries of unresolved family business.

Freely based on the story of Genesis, “Children of Eden” is a frank, heartfelt and often humorous examination of the age-old conflict between parents and children.

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: “The hardest part of love … is letting go.”

“Children of Eden” will be performed at the Janice B. Streeter Theater, 14 Court St., Nashua, at 8 p.m., Friday, Dec. 6, and Saturday, Dec. 7 and 2 p.m., Sunday,
Dec. 8.

There are a lot of local faces in this production. Music director Judy Hayward lives in Mont Vernon. Ashley Hughes-Swanson, who plays Eve, graduated from Souhegan High School and now resides in Merrimack. Cain, played by Nathan Schwartzberg is a Bedford resident. Story teller Michelle Emmond is a teacher and resident of Amherst. Snake singer/story teller Mollie Hayward graduated from Souhegan High School and current attends the University of New Hampshire.
