Are We There Yet?
Are We There Yet? is a children’s musical program for elementary-age kids (K-6). This program includes a play with speaking parts plus 10 kid-friendly songs.
It’s time for a road trip! Are We There Yet? reminds children that each day brings them closer to being the kids that God wants them to be in the world. There are exciting things to see and do all along the way:
. . . Mile Marker 150 – a great spot to celebrate God’s grace & faithfulness.
. . . Spark Spectacular – a place your kids visit to “get hit” by God-given sparks and then learn how to share those sparks with others.
. . . Flex Point – a scenic overlook that isn’t just a destination. It is a game the kids learn to play for the rest of their lives.
. . . Joy Junction – a stop that reminds children that a thankful heart helps them experience joy.
. . . Chew-ka Chew Snack Shop – a great place to grab a snack and a little something to feed the heart and mind, too.
Every stop teaches your kids a little something about living as children of God. And even if they discover that they still have a ways to go, your kids will be confident that God will be there to guide them every step (and at every stop) along the way.

Our production of Are We There Yet? was a smashing success. Thanks for writing and making available such a wonderful musical for our 5-day Music and Drama Camp. How refreshing to find a musical that entwines faith, grace, and flexibility into our lives in such a creative and fun way. Everyone was on stage all the time and the musical was adaptable enough to give everyone lines, solos, duets, or something special to do. I’m looking forward to doing another one of your musicals!
Our 3rd & 4th graders got many compliments on their performance of Are We There Yet? The audience commented on how much they enjoyed the songs and the words in the musical. Thank you so much for writing these musicals!
Are We There Yet? is delightful! The children enjoy the music so much and our parents always look forward to the performance. May the good Lord continue to bless you as you minister to others through your music.
We have been so blessed by every one of your musicals and we are looking forward to this one. We only have a small group, but the programs are very do-able. Thanks for providing these!
Love your music
