Dorothy won’t just have memories of her journey somewhere over the rainbow.
She’ll be able to take a costar home.
Courtney Fortner is adopting the part Shih Tzu puppy that portrayed Toto in Spotlight Productions’ version of “Wizard of Oz.”
The 15-year-old girl played Dorothy in the production that closed Saturday at Marquette High School.
“Toto came as a rescue dog from the Open Door Animal Sanctuary and is kind of a mess sometimes, being just a puppy, but I fell in love with her and decided to keep her,” said Courtney, of Manchester, on a recent Friday afternoon before an evening show.
