Text:A friend of Dorothy is being sought for a stage production of the gay-adored musical, The Wizard of Oz. 3 News reporter Jesse Peach's Peach Theatre Company is bringing the tale to Auckland's Civic in September, with a cast boasting Raymond Hawthorne, George Henare, Lisa Chappell, Tina Cross and Olivia Tennet. However promoters say they are still missing the true star of the show – Toto. They are doggedly determined to find the perfect canine and will hold auditions to cast Toto for the 10 show season. Anyone who thinks they have the dog for the job can register at before Thursday 23 June.. "It does not matter if your dog is little or large, or if they resemble the Toto from the silver screen – they just need that something special," promoters say. The dogs in contention will then be uploaded to the More FM website for public votes, which will decide the top ten hounds. The finalists will be tested for 'agility and pizzazz' at Western Park on Saturday 9 July. - 15th June 2011
