St Helens Theatre Royal Half Term Panto.
St Helens Theatre Royal’s half term panto has opened to rave reviews and one of the stars of the show is Buddy - a two-year-old Jack Russell/Chihuahua/Yorkshire Terrier cross!
Buddy, who hails from Northwich, makes his panto debut in Wizard of Oz playing Dorothy’s best pal Toto and, so far, he has proved to be a real scene stealer and a real favourite with the audience.
The Reviews Hub said: “In a whirl of firework banging, children booing and music blaring, little Toto keeps his cool and delights dog-lovers in the audience with his on stage presence.”
His owner and trainer, Jema Leopold, explained: “Buddy is super excited to be playing the part of Toto at St Helens Theatre Royal.
“He has performed at outdoor shows but this is his first time performing on stage. Buddy is a bundle of trouble and everyone always falls in love with him.
“He has recently started learning agility and has really taken to it and he knows a few tricks too!”
Buddy has his own Instragram account so you can follow him at its_so_buddy. But in the meantime, why not catch him in action in the Wizard of Oz at St Helens Theatre Royal this October half term?
