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

"Compassion was never lost just hidden from view, look for the children and angels, they will find it for you." Narrator from The King's Drum

The King's Drum Cast: Resident Company of performers ages 6-18
Touring dates : October 20, 2016 - May 18, 2017

Synopsis:
This adventure begins with a tale of a Good Queen from an ancient time who knew and loved her people and lived to serve them. Her legacy was strong when she crowned a new king but shortly dissolved as this new leader's power blinded him to the needs of his people. "He forgot what he knew." As he "locks up his gates and his heart" the story catapults us into current time. The children take us to a rundown neighborhood and a home where we meet the first of many guardian angels. Real or ethereal, the story of "The King's Door" reminds us there are angels who await us in the worst of times and gift us with a particular grace at the close of a difficult passage. These "Angels of Hope far outnumber the heartaches, and the goodness they give us remains when the leave." The story returns in the end to find the King after many years have passed within his own crisis in need of a miracle. And we all discover "compassion was never lost, just hidden from view" and are advised "look for the children and angels, they will find it for you."

Notes from the Director:
"Some years our story is as simple as "believing in make believe". And other years, like this one, it starts with stories like the ones coming out of Paris last November. Whether fanciful or full of concern, the process always begins the same way. We ask our kids, "If you could change the world, what would you change?" Their response drives the production process from blank page to preview. Their ideas are certain to be fresh and authentic, and in the last 28 years have always proven to be global in scope.

Creating original works written to be spoken to all ages with an exceedingly musical and intuitive, and lyrical sense, are one of the many things we love to do with our children! The script honors the voice of the "child" without being childish." - Deborah Jung, Kids Who Care Executive Director

Writing Partners:
Written in partnership with Cook Children's, the students of Kids Who Care, full time and extended artistic staff, and a trusted collection of adult writers and poets. All of these people have of one thing in common; the belief that the power of art can change the world.
