Hetz, the theatrical dog, has just been fired from a Stockholm production of The Sound of Music.”
On Friday, during the play’s climactic scene, actor Felix Engström was giving his all to the evil-Nazi role of Herr Zeller. From a dog’s point of the view, Zeller’s aggressive threats have been going on since rehearsals, night after night after night after night…
Finally, Hetz the theatrical dog was moved to a heroic (dog) act, to save the Van Trapp family!
Poor Hetz was (of course) fired, and the actor Felix Engström now has an unusual trophy for convincing acting. Sadly that trophy arrived in the form of a dog bite.
