The Wizard of OZ wouldn’t be complete without Dorothy’s dog, Toto, so Peterborough is searching for a Panto Pooch to tread the boards this Christmas and take on the iconic role!
The Peterborough New Theatre will set the stage on the 12th October for open auditions to find their Toto and all Peterborian Pooch owners are invited to complete the cast of The Wizard of Oz this Christmas.
All those hours spent training them to “Sit” & “Roll Over” will be paid off as they leap to the stage joining forces with the rest of the beloved panto cast, led by Strictly Come Dancing Champion, Katya Jones as Glinda The Good Witch.
The Wizard of Oz pantomime production is looking for a dog that’s
small, friendly, can obey commands and most importantly, will feel comfortable
with all the attention of being in the limelight.
If you want to see your dog get all the star attention you know it deserves, then we’d love to see what they can do!
The auditions for ‘Search for Toto’ shall take place at The Peterborough New Theatre on October 12th from 10am – 6pm, where dogs will be asked to perform simple tricks such as ‘Sit’ ‘Stay’ and other tests of control.
At the end of the competition 2 dogs shall be selected, with the winners being announced the following week!
The winners will alternate throughout the pantomime’s run, lasting over 2 and a half weeks from Saturday 14th until Tuesday 31st December.
The panto production of The Wizard of Oz is brought to Peterborough by specialist pantomime production company Prime Pantomimes, writing, directing and producing panto across the country!
