Is your dog destined for stardom? The hunt is on for this year’s Pantomime Pooch to take a leading role in Beauty & The Beast at the Guildhall Arts Centre this Christmas.

You might be thinking we have gone barking mad. Oh no we haven’t! All the best panto heroes have a furry friend; Tommy the cat in Dick Whittington, Daisy the cow in Jack and the Beanstalk, and Mother Goose of course!

The Guildhall's panto this Christmas will be Beauty and the Beast.

And now the acclaimed Polka Dot Pantomimes have decided that their big Beast needs a little Beast accomplice!

This year they are looking for a cute and lively dog to steal the show alongside their panto stars. No previous dance, acting (or singing) experience is required - Polka Dot Pantomimes welcome ANY dog with basic training who can sit, roll and bark, but say they must have a genuine interest in the theatre to audition.

The winning pooch (and their trainer) must be free for the entire month of December and will be required for sometimes multiple performances a day – so they must be ready for the showbiz lifestyle.

This is a great opportunity for a local dog and their owner to get involved with the panto, with the Polka Dot team really excited to meet all of the entrants.

Auditions are taking place at the Guildhall Arts Centre on Thursday, October 1 from 5.30pm to 7pm. To book your audition slot, call Polka Dot Pantomimes on 01775 712359
