Toto-lly awesome dog sought for canine role in The Wizard of Oz

We are looking for a four-legged star to play Toto in our production of the much-loved musical The Wizard of Oz which they will be performing at Royal & Derngate from Tuesday 24 to Saturday 28 October. Auditions are being held by the company at Northgate School at 7pm on Thursday 27 July.


With a talented adult cast in place and a host of local children selected to play the Munchkins, the spotlight is now being turned to the role of Dorothy’s faithful canine friend Toto.


Though the role was played in the famous 1939 movie by a Cairn terrier, the company would be happy to consider any terrier-like breed of dog, that is small enough to be carried in a basket, and under one arm, by Dorothy. Director Martyn Knight explains: “Temperament and ability are more important than looks. We need a dog that is confident and friendly with people, especially children, that will obey simple commands – on and off the lead – and which won’t be fazed by bright lights, music… and pyrotechnics!”


Auditions are being held at Northgate School on Thursday 27 July at 7pm. Anyone who thinks their dog could have the star quality the company are looking for should in the first instance contact NMTC Chairman Janice Hilton on 07842 553440, or by email at banjosqualityfoods@uwclub.net, to book a place at the auditions.


Regular attendance at rehearsals would be required through the summer and autumn, mostly Monday and Thursday evenings. The owner will need to be with their dog throughout rehearsals and at the side of the stage during performances. Full details of rehearsal and performance commitments will be provided at the auditions.


Following their previous success with Sister Act and Grease, NMTC are delighted to be back at Royal & Derngate this autumn with the colourful classic, The Wizard of Oz, which features the magical songs from the Judy Garland movie, including Over the Rainbow, We’re Off to See the Wizard and more.


The Wizard of Oz takes to the Derngate stage in half-term week from Tuesday 24 to Saturday 28 October. To book tickets – priced from £10 to £22*, call Box Office on 01604 624811 or book online at www.royalandderngate.co.uk.
