Free Rock Opera Apt for the Entire Family

Posted By CotoBlogzz

Mission Viejo, CA – The Department of Theatre Arts at Saddleback, in conjunction with the City of Mission Viejo, will present Children of Eden, music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz and book by John Caird, at The Kershaw Garden on August 10th and 11th at 7:30 pm.  Directed by Jonelle Allen and musically directed by David Anthony, this rock opera, performed by students in the Saddleback College Summer Conservatory program, is freely based on the story of Genesis and is a frank, heartfelt and often humorous examination of the age-old conflict between parents and children. 

This fun musical for the entire family is free with lawn seating only so a blanket and beach chairs are recommended.  The Kershaw Garden is located between the Mission Viejo Library and City Hall at 100 Civic Center in Mission Viejo. 


The Department of Theatre Arts program at Saddleback College produces several fully-staged shows in which students are encouraged to participate.  Theatre Arts students are given the opportunity to audition for every production and Theatre Arts students are given priority in the casting process.  In addition there are numerous opportunities for students to contribute in backstage activities of all college productions.

Located in Mission Viejo, Saddleback College provides quality higher education and training to the greater south Orange County community.  Having served more than 500,000 students since 1968, Saddleback College offers over 300 degree and certificate programs to help students reach their personal, career, and educational goals.  For more information, please and for Fine Arts information, please visit
