The Harbor Playhouse is preparing for their upcoming rendition of Annie.

The character of Annie wouldn't be complete without her beloved dog Sandy, so auditions were held for the perfect dog to play the part.

Dogs took to the stage for directors to see if they fit the part. According to the Harbor Playhouse website, dogs needed to display obedience, stage presence and ability to interact with key characters.

Annie will premier on March 9. Tickets are available at this link.
