Eleven children from nine towns around Westchester and one from Connecticut will be performing with the Random Farms Kids' Theater's Kids Who Care Holiday Troupe at the Meadowview Assisted Living building in Mount Vernon tomorrow, Friday, Dec. 14. Ursula Wise of Old Greenwich will be a featured performer.
The Kids Who Care are a group of 24 young people, ranging in age from 7 to 13 years old, who are using their talents to make a difference in the community. We have two casts, each with 12 children, doing six performances total this holiday season. Our Cast B will be the one performing on Friday, Dec. 14th in Mount Vernon. The Kids Who Care will perform a 20-minute musical revue, filled with songs and dances including classic holiday tunes and seasonal favorites. Their show will be followed by a 10-minute meet and greet where they spend time with the residents.
The children come from 16 different communities from throughout Westchester and Connecticut including Rye Brook, White Plains, Scarsdale, Katonah, Larchmont, Rye, Bedford Hills, Cortlandt Manor, Briarcliff Manor, Hawthorne, Waccabuc, Hastings, Brewster, Patterson, Katonah, and Pleasantville.
"The Kids Who Care are talented child performers from the Random Farms Kids' Theater. They all love to sing and perform; the holiday troupe gives them an opportunity to give back during a time of year when it's important to emphasize the spirit of giving. Our goal is to spread joy by bringing the performing arts to local residents in nursing homes, hospitals and senior centers. Our audiences don't always have the ability to go to the theater, so we bring the show to them," said producer Anya Wallach, a Chappaqua native who runs the Random Farms' Kids Theater.
