“Wild Horse Theater has truly outdone themselves this time around. “Beauty & the Beast, Jr. was a treasure for the audience and cast, and it accomplished what all good theatre hopes to achieve - it truly touched the lives of all persons involved, on and off stage. Wild Horse has successfully created and cultivated a theater troupe where children are accepting, socially conscious, and eager to continue in the performing arts. I am privileged and proud to be a part of it.”

“I want you to know that I had tears in my eyes as I watched the students perform. No one would have known but there were two special needs students who normally struggle but did a wonderful job and were able to share the applause and recognition from the audiences. For these children and all the others who were able to participate, it was up-lifting and positive and we could not have provided this type of activity without your partnership.”
- Casey Gilles, Principal, Fremont Elementary School
“Dear Wild Horse Actors, I loved the play Aristocats. It was the most exciting thing I have ever done. I loved the part where the dogs, cats and gooses chased the butler. It was the best play I ever saw.”
- Sidney, Grade 2, Gardnerville Elementary School
“I’ve worked with a lot of different companies and Wild Horse is everything a company should strive to be. I cannot believe how much I have learned and how much appreciation I have gained for the art. You all have taught me how important theater manners are, and how to act with maturity and dedication in every show. I can’t say enough about how Wild Horse has prepared me for professional theater and for life.”

“A little glitter can turn your whole day around.” Junie B. Jones
Wild Horse Children’s Theater presents the Northern Nevada premiere of “JUNIE B. JONES. JR…THE MUSICAL”, a hilarious adaptation of Barbara Park’s wildly popular best-selling book series.
Laugh yourself silly with Junie B. ones on her first day of first grade, where many changes are in store. Junie’s best friend Lucille has found new best friends, and Junie B. makes friends with herb, the new kid in school. While in Mr. Scary’s class Junie has trouble reading the blackboard, and she may need glasses! Add in a friendly cafeteria lady, an intense kickball tournament and a “Top-Secret Personal Beeswax Journal,” and first grade has never been more exciting! Junie B soon learns that things don’t always stay the same, and that doesn’t have to be a bad thing!
“Junie B. Jones is such a wonderful central character. She’s clever, funny and spirited – and yes, a bit misguided at times. But that’s part of what makes her adventures important, and ultimately, relatable. We all struggle with good judgement at times, both children and adults, so it’s no wonder that watching Junie B. sort through the world in front of her is so endlessly entertaining.”
Don’t miss this family friendly musical that will keep you smiling and tapping your toes along with Junie B. and her friends! Performances are at the Brewery Arts Center Performance Hall in Carson City, Friday, April 20 & 27 at 7:00 p.m., Saturday, April 21 & 28 at 2:00 and 7:00 p.m. and Sunday, April 22 & 29 at 2:00 p.m.
