Consistent with Wild Horse Children’s Theater’s commitment to our “no child turned away policy”, WHCT established the “Kyra and Norma Conway Scholarship Fund”. We realize the importance of the arts in the lives of every child and scholarships allow us to include any young actor who may not be able to pay tuition fees. You can download a scholarship application here or contact us for more information.
About Kyra and Norma:
Kyra Conway was one of our rising “Stars” at WHCT. Kyra was only 11 years old when we lost her suddenly to Influenza B. We will always remember Kyra’s quirky personality and bright smile and we will continue to honor her and her legacy by providing scholarships for children who love being on the stage as much as she did.
Norma Conway was Kyra’s grandmother and a force in the community to be reckoned with! She owned her own dance studio and was extensively involved with the performing arts in Northern Nevada throughout her adult life. Norma’s laugh was infectious, and her smile could light up a room. Norma was a huge supporter of WHCT and, although her presence will be greatly missed, her spirit will dance on forever.
Wild Horse Children’s Theater is guided by these key principles: casting all who audition; setting and achieving the highest artistic standards; embracing diversity in our performers, audiences, and staff; and providing a positive, family-friendly, nurturing community. Through the auditions process, we welcome children from all social and economic backgrounds. While we’re dedicated to training each child in the crafts, and skills required for the theatre, paramount importance is placed on the development of each child’s self esteem, and feeling of belonging at this theatre.
No previous training or experience is required to audition for a part in our productions. We also have a technical theater apprentice program for young people who would rather work back-stage in our productions.
As a non-profit organization, WHCT is self-supporting. Like many nonprofit theater companies, we are not able to cover all of our production expenses with ticket sales and membership fees. Our minimal tuition fee allows us to produce the high quality productions that WHCT is known for and to provide our young actors the opportunity to work with outstanding theater professionals.

Wild Horse Children’s Theater is proud to announce we have obtained the rights for Disney’s Winnie The Pooh, Kids. Come and be part of the magic!
Disney's Winnie the Pooh, Kids is a delightful show based on the be-loved characters of A.A. Milne and the 2011 Disney animated feature film. Featuring favorite songs from the film, as well as new hits by the Academy Award-winning Robert and Kristen Lopez (Frozen), this hon-ey-filled delight is as sweet as it is fun.
Welcome to the Hundred Acre Wood, where Winnie the Pooh is once again in search of honey. Along the way, he meets his pals, Tigger, Piglet, Rabbit and Owl, but soon discovers that Christopher Robin has been captured by the mysterious Backson! As they prepare for a res-cue operation, the animals learn about teamwork, friendship and, of course... sharing snacks.
Filled with all of their favorite characters, Disney's Winnie the Pooh, Kids is a favorite for children to perform. There is ample opportunity for adding a large ensemble and filling your stage with as many creatures of the Hundred Acre Wood as possible.
Please review information (coming soon) on preparing your song for auditions and for character break-downs. You will also be taught a dance at auditions, so please wear comfortable clothes and dance shoes. Bring a current photo. Plan to arrive 15 minutes early to complete the paperwork.
