Call of of the Wild: Illustrated Edition
Check out our 2022-2023 touring schedule, we are excited to bring Call of the Wild to a Theatre near you!



This multi-media adventure mixes classic story telling with projected illustrations to tell the story of Buck, the magnificent cross-bred offspring of a St. Bernard and Scottish Collie. Kidnapped from his lavish life on a California estate and sent to work as a sled dog during the great Klondike Gold Rush, Buck fights to survive and becomes the most famous dog in the whole history of the northland.


Levente Szabo, an illustator from Budapest, Hungary, created these awesome designs for our shows.  Levente's work has been shown around the world. 

He created the art for the British Academy Film Awards.  


Based on the timeless tales of Vasilisa the Beautiful from Russia and the Grimm Brother’s Hansel and Gretel, comes the new musical Gretel! A young motherless child, Gretel, is sent by her wicked stepmother and evil step sister deep into the woods to steal a flaming skull from the great witch Baba Yaga. Along the way, Gretel, discovers her own courage, strength, cleverness and the fact that, despite all obstacles, she is truly a survivor. This adventure story for the whole family has been brought to vibrant life with music by the Paramount’s own Jenn Hartmann Luck and a book begun by Austin playwright, Jason Tremblay before he passed away in April 2017. Theatre Heroes, one of Austin’s most exciting emergent companies, surrounds the story with innovative projected scenic elements, three exceptional Austin-based actors, live music, and features cellist, Nora Karakousoglou, playing live. Celebrated playwright, Suzan Zeder, has joined the creative team to help ensure that this story will live on in the hearts and minds of all who see it.

CALL OF THE WILD was selected for a Spotlight Showcase at IPAY 2017!

"Gaulin is...a force of nature in Austin theatre and while he is necessarily out there on the edge given the roles he masters, he is also nuanced, capable of expressing something with the twitch of a finger or the curve of an eyebrow."

- Central Texas Live Theatre

"Noel Gaulin is such a gifted storyteller; you simply cannot help but fall in love (and experience a little heart-break) with his portrayal of Buck. The projections are truly stunning, adding to the company’s concept of an “Illustrated Edition” and the music captivates from the beginning. I believe this piece has the power to draw schools and public audiences in droves and will leave lasting impact.  I am thrilled to be presenting Call of the Wild on our 2016-2017 season."

- Jennifer Luck, presenter                                                           

"Thank you so much for the delightful experience seeing The Call of the Wild.  My students are still talking about it.  They loved it."
