Would your pooch be the perfect Toto?

Red Loft Theatre is following the Yellow Brick Road back to the Atrium in North Walsham for its Easter production, The Wizard of Oz.

But Dorothy, played by 16-year-old Amelia Watson, needs help finding a starring member of the cast - her best friend Toto.

A spokesperson from Red Loft said: "The perfect Toto should be able to follow commands, fit in a basket - sorry Great Danes - and not be scared by loud noises or sudden bangs, as well as being friendly and adorable."
