Frinton Summer Theatre bosses are looking for the next Lassie to appear in the final play of the season, The Dog, which will be showing from 19th to 23rd August, 2014.
THEATRE organisers hope to unearth a doggy superstar to take on a top role alongside TV legend, Richard Wilson.
According to the Clacton and Frinton Gazette, “a special casting session has been set up to find the right pooch to take the stage.”
It is open to all dog owners across the area, though the casting director is specifically searching for a female dog. The chosen pet will have the chance to upstage leading man and One Foot in the Grave star Richard Wilson.
Co-producer Clive Brill said: “We are only looking for female dogs and we need them to be of a certain size so that audiences at the back can see them on stage. They need to be friendly, docile and biddable as they will have to endure hours of petting and attention. If you think your pet would fit the bill then we’d love to meet them.”
The audition for the hopefuls is from 9.00am to 10.30am on 9th August 2014, at the McGrigor Hall. Richard Wilson will be at the final hurdle to meet the dogs and help producers decide on a winner!
The successful dog needs to be available for rehearsals and the show from 11th to 23rd August 2014.
To register for auditions, call 07905 589792 (the owner of the dog that is)
