“Children of Eden is freely based on the Biblical book of Genesis with book and score by John Caird (Les Mis, Nicholas Nickelby) and Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Disney’s Pocahontas), respectively, provides a unique telling of the story of creation through the epic of Noah and the flood.”
Here’s how to enter and win:
- Post a video of you singing your best “Lost in the Wilderness” riff and tag Children of Eden on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram with the hashtag #COEChallenge.
- Members of the cast and team will vote for their favorite rendition.
- The winner will score a pair of orchestra tickets to the opening night of Children of Eden at the Arcada Theatre in St. Charles, IL.
Children of Eden is scheduled for a special August 2021 performance at the Arcada Theatre, located about 45 minutes outside of Chicago’s O’Hare Airport. The cast will feature multi-platinum R&B star Deborah Cox, Tony-nominee Norm Lewis, Grammy Award-winning gospel artist David Phelps, Grammy winner Kirstin Maldonado of Pentatonix, and America’s Got Talent’s Brian Justin Crum.
Due to COVID-19 concerns, performances are subject to change, but tickets purchased are eligible to be transferred to another date or for a full refund.
