What’s Taking Center Stage:

Look Up

Look Up is a profound and hilarious musical that examines the digital world and its effect on our lives. When going off the grid seems impossible, can we turn these new online communities into tools for positive change?

Originally performed in 2015, Look Up  is a powerful performance with themes that hold up particularly in 2022. This performance can be modified to fit any setting or time frame. For a taste of Look Up, listen to our album on Spotify or Apple Music.

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!

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.
