The multinational cast of Up with People is headed to Roswell next month.
Up with People (UWP), which has toured to 38 countries around the world during the last 47-years, has announced that Roswell will be a stop on their 2013 tour, according to recent information sent to Roswell Patch.
Best known for their high-energy, upbeat, family-friendly entertainment, the cast of 120 participants representing 20 countries will participate in UWP’s international global education program for young adults, the organization says. For over 45 years, the casts of Up with People have toured the globe performing for millions, including an unprecedented four Super Bowl halftime shows. On Jan. 1, 2011, Up with People produced and performed the opening celebration of the Pasadena Tournament of Roses’ Rose Parade which was estimated to have been seen by a television audience of more than 50 million.
Long before Glee, American Idol and High School Musical, Up with People created the genre of high- energy entertainment performed by an ensemble of talented young people from around the world. The show is an international collaboration of music, dance and genuine energy with a message of hope and goodwill across nations. This electrifying stage show will move your feet, stir your soul and touch your heart, the press release promises.
Voices, UWP’s latest production, is a performance featuring both original and popular music and is a dynamic blend of feature soloists, full cast production numbers, fast-moving choreography and colorful costumes. Voices is inspired and motivated by recent worldwide events and features medleys of popular music, international music and of course, Up with People original music. The aim is to leave the audience feeling empowered to connect, communicate and create positive change in their communities; to '...rise above the noises, and listen to the voices of the world.' Throughout the show, international cast members will provide the audience with a glimpse of their own national traditions and cultures through music and dance.
The group is set to perform a public show at Roswell High School on Saturday, March 16 at 7:30 p.m. The proceeds from show ticket sales will benefit local charities, says the organization's press release.
While in Roswell between March 11 and March 18, Up with People will spend time participating in service projects and live with local host families. Beginning this month, Up with People is recruiting families to host international cast members during their stay in the city. The sharing goes both ways…while families share their traditions and local attractions, the cast members share their experiences and cultures. By the end of their five-month world tour, the cast will have visited dozens of communities throughout the United States, Asia and Mexico.
