God is Coming to the Hanover Theater!

God is coming to the Hanover Theater as Assumption College’s Theatre program presents the acclaimed musical Children of Eden at the Hanover Theater on April 15 at 7:30 pm., April 16 at 2 pm and 7:30 pm, and April 17 at 2 pm.

Inspired by the story of Genesis, Children of Eden takes a heartfelt and humorous look at the age-old conflict between parents and children. It begins with the narrative of Adam and Eve, followed by Cain and Able, and finishes with the story of Noah and his family. Written by Stephen Schwartz who also wrote Wicked, Pochantas, and Pippin, as well as John Caird who wrote Les Miserables, Children of Eden delivers an inspirational show about family and faith.

The show features performances by Assumption students, faculty and staff, as well as 26 children from the greater Worcester community. Rebecca Stewart of Pins and Needles Garment Co. in Enfield, New Hampshire created the elaborate costumes.

Through its contemporary score, lively dance numbers, and vivid pageantry, the play delivers the hope-inspiring message that “the hardest part of love...is letting go.”
A short video of cast members Marie Ebacher and Matt Angelini, performing the song "In Whatever Time We Have" from the musical, is embedded below.
