Now that the cast has been selected for the upcoming production of The Wizard of Oz being presented
by the Newport Opera House Association it is time to find the little dog that follows Dorothy along the
Yellow Brick Road to the land of Oz. Toto is a small Cairn Terrier and must be friendly among strangers
and relate well to the actress playing Dorothy.
While the dog will not be required to attend all rehearsals, he must be able to do a few “on command”
tricks. It is best if he has a handler with him in rehearsals and performances. This procedure worked
well with the dog that played Sandy in Annie several years ago.
If you have a dog that would like to be a part of this unique community theatre production at the
Newport Opera House, please contact the Opera House Office at (603) 863-2412. Be sure to leave a
complete message if no one is in the office. The director of the production, Charles H. Massey, will
return your call and discuss your special Terrier as a possible Toto. The Wizard of Oz will be presented
on April 10, 11 and 12, 2015.
