Hudson, NC – The Town of Hudson is proud to announce its 26th Dinner Theatre Production, Children of Eden, which will be presented Thursday through Saturday, October 18, 19, 20, 25, 26 and 27, at the Hudson Uptown Building (HUB) at 145 Cedar Valley Road, Hudson, NC 28638. Children of Eden is a musical with music and lyrics by noted composer, Stephen Schwartz. His other works include Godspell, Pippin and Wicked. This play chronicles the first 9 ½ chapters of the Biblical Book of Genesis. The first act deals with Adam and the second act deals with Noah.

Director Keith Smith says, “This is an extremely spiritual, fresh, inspiring, uplifting story, told from a human perspective and perception. I believe strongly that people of faith will be moved by the narrative and people who are not of a spiritual background will be made to think and feel. Whatever one’s background, he or she will identify because this show grapples with the age old cornerstone issues of humanity. The play addresses creation, fall from grace, free will, family, inheritance, disobedience, faith, redemption and restoration. This very human and very spiritual story is woven through beautiful, powerful music with clever, profound lyrics. You really owe it to yourself to see this production.”

Dan’l Boone Inn will cater the meal, serving fried chicken, country ham, mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans, stewed apples, biscuits and strawberry shortcake. Dinner will be served at 6:30pm with the play to follow at 7:30pm. Tickets are $35 for dinner and the show, $17.50 for balcony seats only.
