The Search for Toto

  • Lyric Theatre of Oklahoma (map)

The search for Toto has begun as Lyric is looking for the perfect pooch to star in THE WIZARD OF OZ this summer at the Civic Center Music Hall! Can your dark haired, 13-18 lb. dog (preferably in the terrier breed) sit, stay and heel on command? Come to auditions and find out if your dog’s got what it takes to be a star!

Auditions will held Friday February 12, 2016 from 4 pm – 8 pm at Lyric’s Thelma Gaylord Academy: 1801 NW 16th Street, OKC 73106.

Animal performer must be able to, or be able to learn to:
Take basic commands from an actor
Be held/carried by the various actors
Be comfortable in large groups of people, bright lights, and loud noises
Be able to be placed inside an appropriately sized basket
Each trainer/owner and performing animal will be given 5 minutes to show us your best tricks. At least one should be from position where the trainer is ‘off stage’ and the animal is several feet away, ‘on stage.’ Please bring any props, treats, or toys that will help your dog shine!
