Festival Show in the News: Watch Young Performers Rehearse Jr. Version of Children of Eden

Go behind the scenes with Playbill.com‘s video of the new “Junior” version of Children of Eden (Festival 1996), adapted by college sophomore Lindsay Maron (with the permission of writer Stephen Schwartz).

Maron is directing and choreographing the production, which will feature music direction by Alex Ratner. MTI (Music Theatre International) has had great success with its edited “Jr.” versions of classic musicals like Annie and Guys and Dolls aimed at elementary and middle school-age performers. This is the first that was adapted and originated by young people themselves–college-age in this case.

Watch the video and learn more about the adaptation at Playbill.com.
