Toto search is on

Getting to know you: Cassie Sheen of Mirboo North was one of the dog owners who came along with her dogs to meet Olivia Winchcombe who plays Dorothy in Lyric Theatre’s production of The Wizard of Oz. Lyric held auditions for dogs which could play Toto in the show.


WASHED and cleaned and with rarely a bark between them, some 10 or more dogs turned up for Leongatha Lyric Theatre auditions on Saturday morning behind Leongatha Memorial Hall.

Lyric was on the hunt for a dog to play Toto in the July production of The Wizard of Oz.

Dorothy, played by Olivia Winchcombe, was on hand to see if she could work well with each dog while Ross Garner helped put each dog through its paces.

None of the dogs appeared to suffer stage fright; a result is expected this week on which dog made the Toto role.

Director Peter McAlpine settled on two dogs for now, “two great little dogs that did everything we wanted”.

They will be trialled at rehearsals and a decision made from there.
