Starving and freezing on a garbage dump behind her owner's home, Sophia was only able to walk on her hind legs when she was rescued. Next week, she will star in the Shakespearan play "Macbeth," assuming the role of "Man's Best Friend."

Thanks to the Baltimore Humane Society, homeless dogs and cats will have the opportunity to star in famous productions throughout the year with The Baltimore Shakespeare Factory. The acting company is helping to get these animals adopted, giving them a full-page "actor's bio" in the playbill and providing the Baltimore Humane Society with an information table at each show.

Theater enthusiasts can catch a prodction of one of Shakespeare's most well known tragedies beginning April 12. "Macbeth" will be performed at The Great Hall Theatre, located at St. Mary's Outreach Center, 3900 Roland Ave., Baltimore. For more information about the production, go here.

Any attendees who see Sophia or other Baltimore Humane Scoiety animal-actors will receive half off on an adoption fee if they mention it when filling out an application at the shelter.
