Audition call for four-legged stars in the making at The Rep

Sarah Mason 8th Aug, 2018

POOCHES destined for fame are being called on to sign up to auditions to star as Toto at The Rep’s Christmas show The Wizard of Oz.

The role of Toto, Dorothy’s canine companion, in The Wizard of Oz is a pivotal one and The Rep is looking for a new canine star to join the company.

The show runs from November 24 to January 13 and theatre bosses are looking for two small dogs that have the enthusiasm and stamina to play the role over the seven-week run.

No previous acting or stage experience is required, but good training and obedience is.

Directed by Liam Steel, this epic stage version of the legendary musical features Somewhere Over The Rainbow, If I Only Had A Brain and Ding Dong! The Witch is Dead.

Liam said: “This is the perfect opportunity to find talented, local pooches to tread the boards in one of the biggest festive productions in the city. We’re not looking for ‘prima-doggas’, just raw canine talent.”

All owners and dogs must be available for the open auditions on Saturday, August 25 and a follow up audition on Saturday, September 8.
