The role of Toto in The Wonderful Wizard of Oz will be played by Teddy the Cairn Terrier who is from Bolton.
After a lengthy audition process, we are delighted to announce that Teddy the Cairn Terrier will be playing the role of Toto in our production of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.
Teddy will share the role with Young Company members Adam and Sam who play Toto whilst Dorothy is lost in Oz.
Claire Brownlow Teddy's owner said "We're delighted that Teddy has been cast as Toto in The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. I always knew he was destined for the stage because he loves attention!
Teddy is great with children and is very well behaved (if bribed). We're really excited to be part of the festive production and Teddy will be receiving a very special Christmas dinner this year."
The production will also star two teams of 12 young people who will take on various roles including Munchkins, Flying Monkeys and Glinda.
The production will run in the Premier Suite at the University of Bolton Stadium from Tue 4 - Mon 31 December. Find out more or book tickets.
