This casting call is just about as specific as the one for "The Fighter" where they only wanted Cambodian men that spoke Khmer. This one though, is for our four legged friends out there.

One very important part has not yet been fully cast. The Company is in search of some four-legged cast members –specifically greyhound dogs. One dog is needed each night, and will be required to walk across the stage on a leash, accompanied by an actor. Interested greyhounds should call (617) 426-0863 for more information.

Oh and if you're wondering which play they're doing this summer, it's going to be The Comedy of Errors.

The Comedy of Errors will be performed July 31—Aug. 16 outdoors at the Parkman Bandstand on Boston Common, in partnership with the City of Boston and Mayor Menino. The program, which has become a beloved civic institution, will draw an estimated 75,000 people over 15 performances. Performances take place Tuesday through Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 7 p.m., weather permitting. Press night will be Aug. 5 at 8 p.m.

If The Comedy of Errors wasn't one of the plays your highschool made you read, you can brush up before the show by reading the wikipedia entry (here) - which is what I'll be doing. We read mostly tragedies - that and A Midsummer Night's Dream.

  1. Rhea Said,

    This is cool. My dog auditioned for a play, Annie, at the Footlight club in JP. He didn't get the part, but the auditions were fun. Lots of different dogs tried out.
