Dog Auditions The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

The Octagon Theatre is searching for a dog to play the role of Toto in our upcoming production of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.

The dog we are seeking will be on stage with a number of cast members and must feel comfortable being surrounded by cast, children, lights, loud noises and an audience of up to 900 people. The perfect pooch will only be onstage for a couple of scenes and be disciplined with a calm and friendly disposition.

The most important factor is that there is total commitment from the owner for every performance of the show as they must be able to commit to being with their dog for every performance and rehearsal.

The dog and owner must be available for the following rehearsal schedule:

Friday 23rd November 5.00pm – 6.00pm                                (Wellsprings building)

Monday 26th November 5.00pm – 6.00pm                               (Wellsprings Building)

Saturday 1st December 3.00pm – 4.00pm                              (University of Bolton Stadium)

Tuesday 4th December 1.30pm – 4.30pm                               (University of Bolton Stadium)

The dog and owner will be required to be at the stadium no later than half an hour before the show start times.

Please download the expression of interest form below and email to deadline for applications is 12pm on Monday 22nd October. 

Auditions will take place on Wednesday 24th October 5pm – 6pm in the Wellsprings building.
