NSMT Announces Benefit Production: Children of Eden
Boston, Mass. (December 15, 2016) – Allow yourself to be transported to the beginning of creation when Voices of Hope presents the beloved musical for all ages, Children of Eden at Bill Hanney’s North Shore Music Theater (NSMT) in Beverly, MA on Saturday, May 6, 2017.
Children of Eden is an inspirational, joy-filled, and hopeful musical that is freely based on the story of Genesis. It’s a heartfelt and often humorous examination of the age-old conflict between parents and children. The family-friendly production was created by musical theater greats Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin, Godspell) and John Caird (Les Miserables, Nicholas Nickleby). The story examines centuries-old, unresolved “family business”, using Biblical characters such as Adam, Eve, and Noah, and ultimately delivers a bittersweet but inspiring message—that “the hardest part of love . . . is letting go.”
Through engaging music, dance, and story, Children of Eden will leave the audience feeling the connection to family, love, faith, and hope—themes that resonate deeply with this group of local performers who are dedicated to raising funds for cancer research. Voices of Hope is an all-volunteer non-profit organization comprised of an amazingly talented and dedicated member base from across the Greater Boston community who have performed several stellar productions at NSMT including: Godspell, Once on This Island, Jesus Christ Super Star, and Fiddler on the Roof. Proceeds from this exclusive performance will be donated to the Henri and Belinda Termeer Center for Targeted Therapies at the Mass General Cancer Center.
