Up With People Coming to Chagrin Falls


Families in Chagrin Falls will have the unique opportunity to bring a bit of the world into their own homes between March 11th and March 17th when an international cast of Up with People arrives in Chagrin Falls, a stop on their 2014 world tour.

 Host families are being sought to keep one or more students from Cast A 2014, the 100-member Up with People cast, which represents 20 countries. “It is a great opportunity to experience other cultures without having to leave your couch,” explained Grant Hamilton,  Promotion Representative for Up with People.

The opportunity to stay with local families during their time in each community is a centerpiece of Up with People’s 22-week program. The giving goes both ways; while families share their traditions and local attractions, the cast members also share their experiences and cultures.

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, which is themed around the power and the irony of communication in today’s global climate. 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 show will be held at Chagrin Falls High School on the 14th & 15th, of March 2014 at 7.00 pm.

“I can honestly say that the dozens of families who have opened their homes to me during my time in Up with People is one of the most meaningful and memorable experiences I have had,” said Grant Hamilton, Promotion Representative for Up with People. “I still stay in contact with many of them,and I believe they will remain lifelong friends,” he added.

Those with smaller children or young teens in their home often find that the Up with People cast members are wonderful role models and provide a glimpse into other countries, cultures and traditions they might not often experience in Chagrin Falls, Hamilton added.

Local families in the Chagrin Falls area are being sought to host the cast members between the 11thto the 17th of March 2014.   Those interested in hosting are encouraged to contact Gary Guisset on the Chagrin Falls Advance Team at or by calling 303.726.0702.
