Everybody’s Theater Company is taking the show OUTSIDE this summer, and we can’t think of a more perfect musical to perform in nature than Stephen Schwartz’s Children of Eden! 

Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin, Godspell, Disney’s Hunchback of Notre Dame) based his joyous, inspiring, and family-friendly show on the first nine chapters of Genesis. Starting with the story of Creation, moving to the Garden of Eden, and then on to Noah’s Ark and the Flood, the show celebrates the human spirit and family across the ages. Children of Eden’s themes of unconditional love, hope, and second chances are timely for our healing community.

We’re looking for strong, dynamic performers for our color-inclusive, ability-inclusive cast. We welcome hopefuls ranging in age from 6th grade (fall of 2021) through adults. 

Rehearsals and performances will occur in an outdoor setting. We will be following a set of COVID protocols to keep performers, staff, and crew safe.  Read our COVID protocols HERE.  

FOR AUDITIONS: 

  • PREPARE 32 bars of music showing your vocal ability and range. Bring your own music in the correct key. An accompanist will be provided. Familiarity with the Children of Eden score is advantageous.
  • LEARN the dance combination (a video link will be sent to you with your audition slot).
  • BE READY You may be asked to do a cold reading 

There is no cost to audition. If cast, there is a performance fee of $50. An inability to pay the performance fee is not a barrier to participation.

CALLBACKS will happen via ZOOM on Monday, May 24 from 7-9:30PM. 

PERFORMANCES will occur on Thursday, July 29, Friday, July 30, and Saturday, July 31 with a rain date of August 1.
