WESTERLY — If you have a medium-sized, sandy-colored, theatrical pooch, the Granite Theatre wants you – and your doggie.
On Sept. 15, the theatre will be holding auditions for canines capable of playing the role of Sandy, the lovable companion of Annie in the musical of the same name, set to open in November.
“The ideal candidate must be obedient and able to come on command, sit, stay and must enjoy people … especially children,” said Associate Artistic Director Beth Jepson.
The auditions are scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 15, from 1 to 3 p.m. at the theatre, 1 Granite St.,Westerly.
Artistic Director David Jepson will direct the show which is scheduled to run for 19 performances between Nov. 23 and Dec. 23.
The stage dog will receive the same stipend as the other actors, said Beth, adding that no singing is required.
It’s an opportuniy to “launch your best friend’s acting career,” she added.
