THE MUSICAL stage adaptation of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is due to premiere at the Palladium theatre in April and the directors have been busy casting suitable canine stars to be a part of the production.

There are 10 canine roles and the auditions saw 60 dogs pass through the curtains and some were better behaved than others. A 19-month-old Mastiff called Murphy was a little too tempted by the plate of biscuits on the director’s table and resisted the obedience test to try and retrieve them!

The musical will be staged at the Palladium in London and stars include Michael Ball, Brian Blessed and Richard O’Brien.
