ARMONK, N.Y. – The award-winning, Armonk-based Lighthouse Youth Theatre (LYT) will give its rendition of “Children Of Eden” for one weekend only at the Rosenthal JCC on May 17 at 8 p.m. and May 18 at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. The music and lyrics are done by Stephen Schwartz.
Loosely based on the story of Genesis, “Children Of Eden” is a frank 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 actions of their respective children. The show ultimately delivers a bittersweet, but inspiring message that "the hardest part of love . . . is letting go.” The show’s production will be performed by Lighthouse’s Protégé troupe, an advanced musical theatre company made up of a select group of talented LYT students, while the cast also features an exciting group of local graduating high school students.
“Children Of Eden” is directed by John Fanelli with Choreography by Jesse Pellegrino, Musical Direction by Kurt Kelley, Production Stage Management by Diane Bradsell with Assistant Stage Manager Casey Hunter.
Tickets for the show are priced at $19. For more information or to order tickets, visit the theatre’s website at www.Lytshows.org or call (914) 741-4205.
