We’re searching for the perfect canine companion!
Leeds Playhouse is on the look-out for the perfect pooch for the role of Toto, Dorothy’s ultimate loyal canine companion, in their Christmas family musical The Wizard of Oz opening November this year.
The theatre is looking for up to four dogs to star as Toto: a small and cheeky four-legged friend who follows Dorothy on her quest over the rainbow and down the yellow brick road on an unforgettable adventure. The perfect pooch will be well trained, have an adorable nature that can shine on stage and will be comfortable and small enough to be picked up by a young person, or carried around in the famous wicker basket.
The Playhouse welcomes dogs of both genders, who are over a year old and who feel they have the energy and endurance to play this important role over the 9 week period. This is a voluntary role, however successful dog owners will be paid a contribution towards their travel expenses. Dog owners will need to fill in an expression of interest form found on Leeds Playhouse’s website. Successful hopefuls will be invited to auditions on Tuesday 20 and Wednesday 21 August.

Directed by Artistic Director James Brining (Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, 2015) The Wizard of Oz promises to be a spectacular and fun-filled musical everyone will enjoy and will play in Leeds Playhouse’s entirely transformed theatre following a Capital Redevelopment.Click here to book tickets for The Wizard of Oz
