Kids Who Care’s Original Works Toured by the Resident Company
Since 1990, Kids Who Care has premiered a new original musical with a message designed to change the world with its July Summer Company. This original work is toured by the Resident Company throughout the school year. The creative process begins during the school year with the Resident Company of youth actors. In a series of writing workshops, this group is encouraged to explore issues they are concerned about...issues about which they want their opinions and voices heard. Their ideas and material are then shared with a group of adult musicians and writers who tweak, embellish, and create accompanying songs and dialogue. The result is a powerful production with a message that cannot be ignored especially when performed by an exuberant cast of young actors! These productions are performed by youth actors for audiences of all ages and because they are initiated with youth's concerns, the messages are powerfully delivered and received.

Book the Resident Company
Kids Who Care is available to come to your event! Pricing is negotiated per performance and varies based on venue, size of audience, length of show, travel costs and lighting and sound system requirements. Non-profits and schools may apply for reduced fee performances if needed. For more information about booking the Resident Company Call 817-737-5437 or email Kristen Thiebaud.
