SAN DIEGO — Scoop, News 8's newsroom dog, got a special invitation to meet the cast of the Wizard of Oz at the Star Theatre in Oceanside. They invited her for a behind-the-scenes look at the show and she got to meet another celebrity dog - Toto!
They've been following Scoop on social media.
"I'm so excited--I'm so happy," said 14-year-old Isabel Peters Meyer. She plays Dorothy. As for Scoop's new celebrity status, she says Scoop should remain humble and honest. "Don't let it get to your head," she laughed.

Scoop also got to know some of the munchkins, including the mayor, played by 11-year-old Ethan Shay. He gives Scoop a little advice should she decide to get into show biz. "Be your natural self, also give a little character to the person you're playing, or the dog you're playing."
Scoop even did a one-on-one interview with San Diego Theatre Connection.
