Kids-N-Co

Kids-N-Co educates and involves young people of all backgrounds in the theater arts. Their programs foster self-esteem and self-discovery by emphasizing discipline, integrity, team-building, and communication skills in a positive environment that promotes creativity. Kids-N-Co promotes access to theater arts for families who do not have regular access to the theater. They serve more than 25,000 young people and their families every year through their five main stage productions, education programs, and outreach projects.

As El Paso’s only non-profit, educational community theater for families and young people, First Presbyterian Church is proud to provide space for this group to meet and perform. With our theatrical and performance center, we can serve the community’s young people and their families through entertaining live performances, and help them build a bridge of understanding between both generations and cultures.

In addition, the theater’s presence has become a unifying creative outlet for children, artists, and patrons in the community, through fostering ethics of teamwork for productions, building confidence in areas like public speaking and performing, and as a space where all of our neighbors can enjoy fellowship and appreciate activities that celebrate all of our differences.

As a non-profit, that means this community outreach program is only successful thanks to the donations and support from the community. The connection that we, First Presbyterian Church, provide to the community opens doors for the potential of this theatre group that otherwise might not exist. That’s exactly why we do it.

El Paso KIDS-N-CO. will be holding auditions for it’s upcoming show “Godspell” at 6 p.m. Jan. 20 and 21, at First Presbyterian Church of El Paso, 1340 Murchison. Directed by Rachel Robins with Musical Direction by Ajith Kumar and Choreography by Kaelin Walker, the musical has roles for 10 people. All ages will be considered, ranging from 8 to adult (the role of Judas/John has been precast). Auditions will consist of a song from the show, cold readings from the script, and some storytelling improve. Shows are scheduled for Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays, March 8-24, at First Presbyterian Church.

“Godspell” was the first major musical theatre offering from three-time Grammy and Academy Award winner, Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin, Children of Eden); and it took the world by storm. Led by the international hit, "Day by Day," Godspell features a parade of beloved songs, including "Prepare Ye the Way of the Lord," "Learn Your Lessons Well," "All for the Best," "All Good Gifts," "Turn Back, O Man" and "By My Side."

A small group of people help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques and a hefty dose of comic timing. An eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from pop to vaudeville, is employed as the story of Jesus' life dances across the stage. Dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and the Crucifixion, Jesus' messages of kindness, tolerance and love come vibrantly to life.

Boasting a score with chart-topping songs, a book by a visionary playwright (John-Michael Tebelak) and a feature film, Godspell is a sensation that continues to touch audiences.
