Have you always secretly known your pooch is a cut above the rest of the puppy hoi-polloi?
Deep down, do you believe they're destined for bigger things?
Your canine companion's chance to shine may have arrived.
Melinda Schneider will perform at the Shoalhaven Entertainment Centre on Saturday, March 28, and she's after a local four-legged friend to star alongside her.
She has put the call out for 'pawditions' - but only the best boys (and girls) need apply.
She is after dogs who are obedient, professional, take direction well and can smile at the audience.
No previous stage experience is necessary, but ability to walk on stage, jump up on a chair and be sung to, is essential.
All dog breeds are encouraged to audition.
If you believe your pooch has what it takes to steal the show, send a picture of your dog and 25 words or less about why they are perfect for the part to firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday March 25 2020.
Melinda herself will be choosing the lucky dog who will accompany her on stage.
The winner will receive two complimentary tickets to the show and a packet of schmackos.
The show itself will pay tribute to the legendary Doris Day, who passed away in 2019, aged 97.
"I was so saddened to hear the news of the passing of the amazing Doris Day ," Melinda said.
The nostalgic concert celebration will feature the Young At Heart Orchestra and include such timeless hits as Que Sera, Sera, Sentimental Journey, Everybody Loves a Lover and Secret Love plus classic songs from the movies Calamity Jane, Love Me or Leave Me and The Pajama Game, as well as a number of Doris' big band standards.
Melinda's love affair with Doris Day started when she saw Calamity Jane aged eight.
"I thought she was the best of everything a woman can be, and when I grew up I wanted to be just like her," Melinda said.
"Whenever I revisit some of her old movies, I'm transported back to that place, a place of happiness and pure joy."
In 2010, Melinda released the acclaimed tribute album Melinda Does Doris - A Tribute To Doris Day, which debuted at #1 on the ARIA Jazz and Blues chart, remaining there for 9 weeks.
The following year, Melinda starred in her own hugely successful original theatre show, DORIS, Doris Day - So Much More Than The Girl Next Door , which she wrote with David Mitchell of Dusty/Shout fame.
Before the show was staged, Melinda sent Doris the script: "I wanted to make sure she was happy with the way we had portrayed her, and she came back giving me the thumbs up, which made me very happy. "
"Doris was multi-talented, a true triple threat. But it is her beautiful spirit that will stay with me. Doris was so likeable and exuded such sincerity and joy and all that is good. There will never be another like her."
"Singing her songs and telling her incredible story of resilience has been an absolute honour, and I'm happy to have the opportunity to celebrate her wonderful talent with audiences once again."
