Children of Eden (2001) | Coomera Anglican College

In August 2001 Coomera Anglican College staged its first ever musical, adding another exciting chapter to the history of our College. Featuring over 60 students, Children of Eden was staged at the Robina Community Centre with a main performance at 8pm and a preview performance at 2pm.

The musical, written by Stephen Schwartz and John Caird, was a re-telling of parts of the Book of Genesis. Act 1, set in the Garden of Eden, told the story of Adam, Eve, Cain and Abel. Act 2 featured the story of Noah and the Ark.

Auditions for the production attracted some very talented actors, singers and dancers. Following the announcement of the cast, students worked hard to ensure the musical was a roaring success. The students in the cast were very capably supported by a dedicated band of staff and students and the whole College community was very proud of the performances produced by the students.

The spark of creation - may it burn forever.
