Skylight Music Theatre announces “So You Think You Can Be Toto” Competition to be held on September 22 at 6:00 p.m. in the Cabot Theatre at the Broadway Theater Center (158 N. Broadway, Milwaukee, WI). Skylight invites the public to attend this one of a kind competition.

Skylight is seeking 2 well trained, small breed dogs (preferably Terriers or Terrier mixes) to play TOTO in the upcoming production of The Wizard of Oz.

During the audition the candidates will be asked to “perform” with an actress portraying DOROTHY. The audition will include loud music, a live audience and multiple distractions to simulate the live theatre environment. No previous acting experience is required but a well trained dog with a perky disposition is a plus.

Oz Historian and Film Critic, Ryan Jay will join Skylight’s artistic staff as a Celebrity Guest Judge for the competition.

For additional info, please visit the Skylight website. Interested trainers and owners should contact Skylight’s Artistic Administrator, Lesley Stone at

Rehearsals for The Wizard of Oz begin October 28 and performances runs November 21 – January 4 in the Cabot Theatre at the Broadway Theatre Center (158 N. Broadway, Milwaukee WI).
