Children of Eden is a well-received musical theatre piece with book and score provided respectively by international theatre icons, John Caird and Stephen Schwartz. Having first been written for a religious-oriented high school theatre camp, the production eventually opened in London’s West End in 1991, following a workshop at the Royal Shakespeare Company, as well as at the world-renown New Jersey Paper Mill Playhouse in 1996. Children of Eden is a piece freely based on the Biblical book of Genesis, providing a frank, heartfelt, and humorous examination of the age-old conflict between parent and child. The family-friendly content and soaring musical score, an accumulation of operatic Broadway-pop and gospel, continues to be one of the most adored works among theatre enthusiasts around the world. CT backed a 2022 concert engagement with Broadway in Chicago in October, due to stream later this year. Additional information can be found at


In this hilarious musical parody of the holiday classic Die Hard, audiences are invited to the annual Nakatomi Christmas Eve Party on the 30th floor of the Nakatomi Plaza. Grizzled New York cop Bruce McClane is there to rekindle love between his estranged wife and 80s business woman Holly Generic. Everything is going swimmingly until fashion obsessed Hans Olo and his group of German terrorist take everyone hostage...everyone except McClane. Filled with hysterical musical numbers, farcical fight sequences, explosions, machine guns, and more Christmas Snow than Los Angeles ever gets, there is a reason Yippee Ki-Yay Merry Christmas: A DIE HARD Christmas Musical has quickly become a Chicago holiday tradition. CTF is proud to support Chicago home grown storefront theatre.
