Welcome to Wildfish Theatre

Wildfish Theater specializes in teaching musical theater arts in a production based curriculum. Each semester students learn, study and perform a Broadway show that is fully costumed and staged. Through the semester students learn to work together, feed off each other's creativity, and gain confidence culminating in a performance for their families and friends.

A very special aspect of our program is that each semester we find a way for the students to give back to the community. We believe by teaching children about philanthropy, we are planting a seed to help them grow into compassionate, giving adults. The students will sometimes perform for school, they might use the proceeds of a performance to go to their favorite charity, or they might have a day where they go and deliver lunches to children around Houston.

Sneak a peek into the "Top-Secret Personal Beeswax Journal" of the outspoken and lovable Junie B. Jones!

Created by Marcy Heisler and Zina Goldrich, the team that brought you Dear Edwina, comes Junie B. Jones The Musical - a delightful adaptation of four of Barbara Park's best-selling books brought to life in a genuinely comical, and not strictly-for-kids musical developed by TheatreworksUSA. 
It’s Junie B.’s first day of school, and a lot of things have changed for her: Junie’s friend Lucille doesn’t want to be her best pal anymore, and on the bus, Junie B. makes friends with Herb, the new kid at school. Also, Junie has trouble reading the blackboard and her teacher Mr. Scary thinks she may need glasses. Throw in a friendly cafeteria lady, a kickball tournament and a "Top-Secret Personal Beeswax Journal", and school has never been more exciting!

A hilarious, coming-of-age musical about discovering that "cool" is sometimes where we least expect it.

Geek. Poser. Jock. Beauty Queen. Wannabe. These are the labels that can last a lifetime. With an unforgettable rock score from TONY Award-winning composer Jason Robert Brown, (Parade, The Last Five Years, Bridges Of Madison County) 13 is a musical about fitting in – and standing out!

Evan Goldman is plucked from his fast paced, preteen New York City life and plopped into a sleepy Indiana town following his parents divorce. Surrounded by an array of simpleminded middle school students, he needs to establish his place in the popularity pecking order. Can he situate himself on a comfortable link of the food chain or will he dangle at the end with the outcasts?!

Winner of the TONY "Triple Crown" for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book, Avenue Q School Edition is part flesh, part felt, and packed with heart.

The laugh-out-loud musical tells the timeless story of a recent college grad named Princeton who moves into a shabby New York apartment all the way out on Avenue Q. He soon discovers that although the residents seem nice, it's clear that this is not your ordinary neighborhood. Together, Princeton and his new-found friends struggle to find jobs, dates, and their ever-elusive purpose in life.

Filled with gut-busting humor and a delightfully catchy score, not to mention puppets, Avenue Q School Edition is a truly unique show that has quickly become a favorite for audiences everywhere.
