What's a production of Legally Blonde the Musical without the beloved canine companions, Bruiser Woods and Rufus? This past weekend we hosted our first ever open Doggie Auditions, and every dog/handler team brought their a-game! We are happy to announce the four dogs that will take the stage this summer at Richmond Hill Centre for the Performing Arts. Read their interviews below!

Tricks: the usual sit, stay, down, shake a paw, etc. but her most impressive trick is singing opera. Will be your best friend if: you baby talk to her and tell her how beautiful she is :).
