Families in Roswell will have the unique opportunity to bring a bit of the world into their own homes between March 11thand March 18th 2013 when an international cast of Up with People arrives to Roswell, a stop on their 2013 world tour.


Host families are being sought to keep one or more students from Cast A 2013, the 120-member Up with People cast which represents 20 countries.  “It is a great opportunity to experience other cultures while sharing your own,” explained Anna Schwed, Promotion Representative with UWP.  


Local host families are asked to provide a bed, local transportation at the beginning and end of each day, as well as breakfast and most dinners.  While gone during the day, participating in regional learning, community service and show preparation, most evenings cast members will be home with the family to participate in their activities and interests.


In addition to many wonderful experiences with their new “son” or “daughter,” each host family will receive two complimentary tickets to the Up with People’s newest production Voices, to be held at the Roswell High School Auditorium on Saturday March 16th 2013. 


The proceeds from show ticket sales will benefit local charity.

So excited to see Up With People come to the Roswell area!! We have hosted Up With People students many times in the past and always had a great experience. We are definitely going to host again. Don't hesitate to host. You won't regret it!!

Up with People casts came to towns near mine in South Dakota back in the 80s and 90s, and we hosted a couple of students when I lived in Florida. Looking forward to being a host family again and seeing the new show. Great experience!
