“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.”

Extra! Extra! Read all about it! Wild Horse Children’s Theater presents the Tony Award winning Broadway phenomenon, Disney’s Newsies at the Bob Boldrick Theater in the Carson City Community Center 851 East William Street in Carson City, June 28, 29, 30 and July 5, 6, and 7th.
Based on the true 1899 story of a scrappy group of newsboys in New York City who become unlikely heroes when they rally forces to fight an unscrupulous newspaper tycoon, this inspirational defy-all-odds musical leaps onto the stage with soul stirring music, amazing heart, and stunning, energetic choreography.
Based on the Disney film, Newsies brings together an impressive cast of adults and youth who will win your hearts with their high-flying dance numbers and rousing vocal score. Newsies tells how a band of underdogs took on the most powerful names in New York in a fight for what's right. The poor and orphaned teenagers, selling newspapers for a penny a paper, are pushed to the limit when newspaper moguls Hearst and Pulitzer try to take away more of their meager profits. Jack Kelly becomes the leader who rallies the newsies from across the city to take a stand and strike against the most powerful publishers in the country. Their cause becomes even bigger than any of the newsies imagined when they realize they’re fighting for all the children working in unfair and unsafe conditions across the nation.
Executive Director, Carol Scott says, “We have assembled a wildly talented cast of young people and adults in our community. The energy just pours off the stage and every day they just take my breath away with their singing and dancing skills. When the rights became available we knew we were ready to “seize the day” and present this magical musical to the Northern Nevada community!”
