 Ages 5-18, Auditions January 18 & 19, 2023


Wild Horse Children’s Theater is moving to Whoville! Wild Horse Children’s Theater announces auditions for young singers, dancers, and actors (ages 5-18), for our spring 2023 production of "Seussical, JR! ". Auditions will be held Wednesday and Thursday, January 18th and 19th at the Brewery Arts Center Performance Hall in Carson City. Callbacks are on Saturday the 21st at 1pm. Auditions are by appointment only! The audition packet, audition music (including songs to prepare for auditions), character breakdowns, and link to schedule an audition, will be available on our website at by the end of December.

Horton The Elephant, the Cat in the Hat and all your favorite Dr. Seuss characters spring to life onstage in Seussical, JR., a fantastical musical extravaganza! Transporting audiences from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus, the Cat in the Hat narrates the story of Horton the Elephant who discovers a speck of dust containing tiny people called the Whos. Horton must protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, and he must also guard an abandoned egg that’s been left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family, and community are challenged and emerge triumphant!

Performances will be weekends April 21st and 28th at the Brewery Arts Center Performance Hall. Rehearsals are Wednesdays and Thursdays from 4:15-6:30 and cast members will get a full rehearsal schedule at the first rehearsal. Not everyone will be required to be at every rehearsal.
