DOES your dog deserve to be in the spotlight? They could be starring on the stage when opera La Boheme comes to the Orchard Theatre in April.

International soloists will join the celebrated Chisinau National Opera and Philarmonic Orchestra’s show in Dartford on April 23 – but there is still one part to be cast, the role of Muzetta’s pet dog.

The show is looking for a small terrier-like dog that is well behaved and the owner must be prepared to go on stage in costume to look after him or her.

To audition your dog, send a photograph to Sadie Williams at  You need to include your contact number and address as well as the breed, height, weight, age and name of your dog.

If you are successful, you will be contacted a week before the performance.

La Boheme will be at The Orchard Theatre on Wednesday 23 April at 7.30pm. Tickets cost between £20.00 and £33.50. Go to or call 01322 220000.
