It was a day of furry celebration as London’s theatre scene welcomed some very special guests, in honour of World Theatre Day. Shakespeare’s Globe unleashed a trio of adorable pooches to tour 12 venues across the city.

The journey was a heartwarming tribute to the art of theatre. The Globe aimed to shine a spotlight on the value of this age-old craft, using some four-legged ambassadors to spread the love.

Accompanied by their doting owners, the canine crew embarked on a theatrical adventure, making stops at iconic London shows like Disney’s The Lion King and Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. Bella the Red Setter, Betty the Border Terrier, and Heidi the Toy Poodle won over hearts with their wagging tails and boundless enthusiasm.

To mark the occasion in style, the Globe’s in-house wardrobe team fitted the furry visitors with bespoke ruffs, adding an extra touch of whimsy to their already adorable antics.

Venturing beyond the West End, the pups also made appearances at a diverse range of venues, from the Adelphi Theatre to the Royal Court. From the dazzling lights of Disney’s Frozen the Musical to the intimate embrace of the Lyric Hammersmith, the dogs brought joy to each stage they graced.

The canine crusade didn’t stop there. Embracing the spirit of inclusivity, the tour made sure to visit a variety of spaces, including the Theatre Cafe Diner and the hallowed halls of Shakespeare’s Globe itself.

Fittingly, the Globe captured every precious moment of this heartwarming journey, and will be sharing a delightful video diary on their social media channels, allowing theatre lovers to relive the magic and mischief of the day.

As the world grapples with challenges and uncertainties, the Globe’s initiative serves as a timely reminder of the enduring power of theatre to uplift and unite. Through the simple joy of canine companionship, this delightful tale proves that the spirit of theatre knows no bounds.

As World Theatre Day drew to a close, we’re left with a powerful testament to the unbreakable bond between art, community, and our four-legged friends. And in the end, it’s a reminder that the stage is a space for everyone – even the most charming of furry visitors.
