This year`s panto in Wellingborough`s looking for a canine star.
The Wizard of Oz is being staged at Castle Theatre from the 13th to the 30th of December and those behind it are looking for a dog to play the part of Dorothy`s pet Toto.
Producer Guy Pascall said:
“If local dog owners would like their pet to be considered for the role of Toto, then they need to bring them along to the Castle Theatre at 1pm on Thursday 23 November. We will then walk the dogs around the stage to see how they feel about being in the actual space and then also get them to interact with the actress playing Dorothy in the show”.
Enchanted Entertainment have assembled a stellar cast, a fantastic live band and are planning some spectacular magic to ensure The Wizard of Oz will be a brilliant family Christmas show with plenty of audience participation, fantastic sets and costumes, and of course jokes galore for all the family!”
The show will feature Keira Laws as Dorothy, Chris Stanton Mr Flatley from CBBC’s M.I. High, as The Wizard and Gabrielle Green, Katrina from CBBC’s Wolfblood, as Glinda – plus a full supporting cast and live band.
