Dogs featured in play at Dreyfoos School of the Arts from Big Dog Ranch

Students at Dreyfoos High School are getting ready for their big play this week.
 
More than 100 students will take to the stage for "Legally Blonde The Musical." 
 
Also making an appearance---Bruiser and Rufus.
 
"It's a great pairing for us we love an opportunity to get out in the community, so that more and more people can understand what we do and why its important," said Farrah Fugett-Mullen.
 
Bruiser and Rufus are rescue dogs. 
 
Dreyfoos High school and Big Dog Ranch came together at the end of last year and decided to foster out two dogs from the shelter for the show. 
 
The canine actors come to practice everyday, and are fostered with the lead actors.
 
"He stays in my purse, my lap, and in my room, and he's been very very very good about coming on stage when needed too," said Olivia Dei Cicchi.
 
"They say the worst people work with on stage is dogs, because they take all the attention because they're always present in the moment, never acting, which is what we try and do," Charly Hamann.
 
Both dogs will be adopted by the actors who have been fostering them.
 
Opening day is Thursday. Tickets are $15.
