Annie get your dog

A THEATRE company is desperately seeking a talented pooch to paw the boards in its latest production.

Nailsea Musicals is incorporating its mini, junior and adult groups for its rendition of

Annie, due to be staged from November 14-17 at Scotch Horn Leisure Centre.

Young actor Cara Taylor, who is playing the part of Annie, has had to begin rehearsals without a four-legged friend by her side.

Publicity manager Graham Chipperfield said: “After our sell-out production of Jack and the Beanstalk in January, we wanted to put on a really big musical and Annie fits the bill.
