Paws what you’re doing and mark your calendar for Friday, June 21, 5:00 and 6:30 p.m. at the Brewery Arts Center. Students with the Carson City School District, in partnership with the Wild Horse Children’s Theater, will debut their Summer Theater Camp’s adaptation of Disney’s 101 Dalmatians, Kids. Admission to the play is free of charge; however, donations will be accepted.

Sponsored through the Gifted and Talented Education program at the Carson City School District, the 2-week theater camp features incoming students in grades third through eighth. The program is designed to help keep student minds active during the summer months. Hosted at Seeliger Elementary School, the summer camp began Monday, June 10, and will finish this Friday, June 21, with the two free performances.

Specially adapted from the 1967 film, the play includes all the favorite Disney tunes, like “Cruella De Vil” and the catchy jingle “Kanine Krunchies.” In this classic Disney story, dalmatians Pongo and Perdita happily raise their 15 puppies in a cozy London home with their human pets, Roger and Anita, when their sinister neighbor Cruella De Vil dognaps the puppies. Join Roger, Anita, Pongo and Perdita as they race to get their pups back from Cruella and her henchmen before Cruella turns the puppies into a fur coat.

A talented cast and crew of 55 Summer Theater Camp students between the ages of eight and 14 brings the ensemble of dalmatians, poodles, scotties, chihuahuas and humans to life.

Wild Horse Children’s Theater, a non-profit organization founded in 2007, is the oldest, continuous running children’s theater in Carson City and has introduced thousands of children from northern Nevada to the magical world of theater. Through participation in drama instruction and performance opportunities, both on and off the stage, the theater company is instilling a life-long love of the performing arts in the hearts of its young actors.
