Storyhouse is looking for a new lead!

Monday 6 November 2017

Storyhouse is looking for dog owners who would like their canine companion to be in our performances of The Secret Seven Christmas show.

This is a great opportunity for anyone who would like to spend time seeing how a professional theatre production works behind the scenes, and who may want to get their pet into the acting business – who knows, you may have the next Lassie or Pudsey on your hands!

Scamper the dog is the 8th member of The Secret Seven!


The dog that we are looking for needs to be a Spaniel and either golden, red, orange or tan colour. No acting experience is required, the dog will only take part in the final scene and will stay on the lead with one of the actors for the scene. You do not need to be available for all of the shows. We will need you to bring your dog and stay with him/her for the hour required. On-stage lighting will be used throughout the show and so the dog will also need to be comfortable with lighting changes that will be taking place.

Applicants must be prepared to commit to at least one performance during the run of the show between the dates of Thursday 30 November and Saturday 14 January.
All expenses will be paid to the successful applicants.

For an application form please email or call 01244 747426.
The deadline for all applications to be received is Monday 20 November .
