What People are Saying
"We have booked Kids Who Care for the Leadership North Texas opening retreat since the program started in 2009. These young leaders are impressive, engaging and have no trouble coaxing adults out of their comfort zones. The feedback each year is always the same: The future is a bright place with these young leaders!"
Kimberly Walton -- Vice President, Communications, North Texas Commission

"The first time I saw Kids Who Care perform was at the Ronald McDonald House in Fort Worth. Not only was the kids' performance beautiful and artistically impressive, but the message was so powerful. It was the first time these kids moved me to tears, but certainly not the last. It was the perfect complement to the Ronald McDonald House's Topping Out ceremony."
Brandi Sanchez -- Vice President, Customer Experience, GM Financial

Synopsis:
Earth and Soul stands in our history as one of our Kids favorite musicals! This kid-packed cast takes us on a multi-sensory journey. They inspire each of us that it's not too late to care about the planet. Lifting off with choreographer Brittany Jenkins' breath-taking movement, Pam Adair's masterful vocals, basking in Chad Jung's lighting design, Chase York's projections, and David Lanza's sound scape, family and school day audiences have a blast!

Earth and Soul provides a theatrical adventure. We connect to the inspired leadership of the Palm Beach Zoo and brush elbows with a woman named MaLwin in the Bago Mountains of Thailand as we shares her tender love for the Elephants. We meet Chad Pregracke on the floor of the Mississippi and go to India to meet a young Amercian female scientist Deepika Kurup. Each stop has a special story of the brave activism of an individual bent toward change for the good of the planet.

Earth and Soul is laced with the high pitched energy of 50 kids who believe we can change the world. This original Kids Who Care musical is filled with hilarious pieces of tongue in cheek humor and inspirational words that declare our power to make a difference.

Notes from the Director:
Earth and Soul is the re-emergence of a musical we have produced twice in our history. Originally written in 2000, it was a "Revival of the Planet". Fort Worth was in the midst of a re-cycling revolution, grocery stores were asking, "Paper or plastic?", and everyone's message was conserve, conserve, conserve.

By 2007, our message of conservation and revival had turned into a "Musical Revolution"! This time we took the audience on an "Alice in Wonderland" adventure to the center of the planet. The urgency and impatience of the opening number, This Is the Day, followed by This is the Age written in 1949, set in motion a picture of our world spinning at such a pitch we had lost touch with creation and with each other.

The musical was full of whacky characters; gardeners to plumbers to conservationists who dug their way to the center of the planet discouraged by the deaf ear of the world to the critical state of the planet. Children led by a "Little Girl in a Pink Dress" convince these activists to return to the surface to continue their work, to not give up. And to the audience our children reminded us "To Step Outside and Listen!"

This year, a full 10 years later, we returned to "Earth and Soul" for the third time. As we began to write we were bent on optimism and activism. Inspired by the heroes of conservation and invention, the internet brought us story after story of real people making huge strides in their personal efforts to take care of their own back yard. Whether that was the ocean, the Mississippi River, or the elephants in the Bago Mountains, it is obvious that small shared efforts create big changes.

Our children's message this time with "Earth and Soul"? Be informed, remain optimistic, be diligent, make changes. As for optimism, we know that the best way to predict the future is to invent it!

Important Dates:
Earth & Soul will be on stage at the Fort Worth Community Art's Center Scott Theatre October 20, 2017 and May 19, 2018.
March 2018 Resident Company Tour to Los Angeles, California.
