Colorado Shakespeare Festival seeks dog for acting role

Calling all dogs! The Colorado Shakespeare Festival is seeking a dog—preferably two dogs—to share the role of Crab in The Two Gentlemen of Verona by William Shakespeare in the 2022 summer season. The play runs June 5–Aug. 7.

Crab is in three to four scenes, where he mostly comes onto the stage and lays down. An older, calm dog who is not excited by large crowds, doesn’t mind bright lights or perhaps sudden noises is desirable. Opinionated barkers need not apply—this is a nonspeaking role.

The owner/handler will receive a stipend and eight complimentary tickets to the season. CSF is hoping to meet interested candidates at the Mary Rippon Theatre on March 27 at 10 a.m.
