Kids Who Care
A word from Deborah Jung
Kids Who Care Founding Director
"We are a musical theatre company for all ages, which says a very small part of who we are. Obviously with a name like Kids Who Care it's more than theatre. What we do is produce great kids. We teach through the idea of an ensemble musical theatre company. Kids learn how to produce great work and at the same time how to take care of each other.
As a producer of musical theatre, we want to produce something out in the world that changes thinking, or at least encourages hopeful thinking. While all of our work is legit entertainment, it should give a sense of hope in the end.
Kids find us either because a parent sees something in the living room or the kid is dying to get in front of an audience. Our job is to maximize what happens to that child when they land here. We give kids an avenue to take what they are doing in their living rooms and create a professional venue for it.
We are very traditional theatre company in that the skills translate to any professional theatre. However, because we are a theatre that adores kids, we are intentional about selecting a professional staff that wants to do what we do.
Kids Who Care is an international company. Each summer we host kids from around the world. We are happiest in a sea of kids speaking six languages!! Visit us in the middle of July Camp and see what I mean!
When you leave the theatre after a Kids Who Care performance, we hope you have laughed hard, cried a little bit, and feel better. For a moment we sit together, all ages, and watch Kids Who Care and feel like the world is going to be ok."
