Corgi dog star wanted

Corgi dogs with the potential to be a star are being called to audition for a guest appearance at Watford Palace Theatre.
Dog owners are invited to send in a photograph of their Corgi to the marketing department at the theatre and the successful ones will go onto the next stage, which is an informal audition at the theatre.  The audition is expected to mean a simple obedience test and will give the department chance to see how the dog copes when handled by a non-owner.

The chosen star Corgi will have his or her own walk on part in the second half of The BFG production which runs at the theatre from 28th April to 2nd May.

The Queen is being played by Heather Phoenix who will walk the corgi onto the stage and then the butler, Mr Tibbs, will walk him or her off again.  The owners will be required to stay in the wings of the theatre and both dog and owner must be available for the curtain call.

There is no remuneration fee offered for the part, however, a small ticket allocation will be made available to see the show.

Most dog owners believe their own dog is a star but those who believe their Corgi has the makings to be a theatre star are asked to send their dog’s photograph with their name, address and telephone number to:
