Judge Story’s Theatrical Troupe (JSTT) is set to perform “Children of Eden” for this year’s summer musical. The show has music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz and a script written by John Caird.


The show is based on two major stories chronicled in the Book of Genesis: the Garden of Eden and Noah’s Ark.


Featuring an all-ages cast of 36 and a variety of creative puppets, the show tells a story about parents, children, faith and love.


The cast has been rehearsing since March, while the production team has been developing major set pieces and puppets since January.
