Want to get your pooch into show biz? Well this could be their big break.

The Festival Ballet Providence is holding a casting call for dogs to perform in their annual Nutcracker show.

The news is actually a little bitter sweet for the ballet company who say their former four legged star recently passed away after 19 years of performing with them.

According to ABC6, Archie was Yorkshire Terrier who passed away peacefully this summer.

So in honor of this pooch who held this role for so long, the dog in the Festival Ballet's Nutcracker will be named "Archie."

And you're dog could be the next "Archie."

An open casting call is being held on Sunday November 24 from 12 p.m. - 2 p.m. at the Festival Ballet Providence studios at 825 Hope Street, Providence.

The company will be casting two dogs for the shows at PPAC this December and all breeds, sizes and ages are welcome.

Think your dog has what it takes? Then get them all dolled up and ready to perform on November 24th.

Owners are asked to bring their pets on leashes and the dogs must be able to cross the grand studio to their owners without guidance.

If you have a well trained pup that you think will shine on stage, then head to Providence next month.

And if you are looking to be a dog owner (or add to your canine crew), at the same time as the auditions the East Greenwich Animal Protection League will be in the Festival Ballet parking lot hosting an adoption event for pets in need of a forever home this holiday season.
