ALL owners of corgi dogs - apart from the most famous that is - are invited to nominate their pet to make a guest appearance in a production at Watford Palace Theatre.
The chosen dog will be required to be walked on and off in the second half of The BFG which is being performed at the theatre from April 28 to May 2.
He or she will be walked on by Heather Phoenix who plays the Queen and walked off by Mr Tibbs the butler. The owners will need to stay in the wings and both need to be available for the curtain call.
No remuneration will be provided but there will be a small allocation of tickets available to see the show.
Corgi owners are invited to send a photo of their dog to the theatre marketing department by next Friday, April 10, and successful applicants will be invited along to the theatre for an informal audition the following week.
That will involve a simple obedience test and to see how well the dog copes with being handled by a non-owner.
