The Wednesday matinee performance of The Play That Goes Wrong at the Orchard Theatre, found the cast performing to an audience of a fluffier kind. Guide Dogs for the Blind Medway visited the theatre with 4 puppies in training to be the next generation of guide dogs. Guide Dog trainers, Leslie, Janice, Kathryn, Brian and Sue brought along Beth, Marcel, Binky and Reef and they couldn’t contain their excitement upon entering the theatre and meeting each other.
The puppies were taken on stage for their first taste of fame and were greeted by the cast of The Play That Goes Wrong and began their meeting with a professional demeanour. The puppies took a break from their working day to enjoy some playtime with the cast and crew.
