Meet Dolly, a talented Wee Blackface sheep (find out about the breed here) and much loved baby sister to Colin (aka Wee Blackface Sheep, Version 2). A prodigy of musical theatre Dollys days are spent singing and dancing to an audience of gulls, rabbits and other creatures who reside along the spectacular cliff paths of Dunottar Castle. Each night Dolly can be found gazing at the stars dreaming of one day performing under the bright lights of Broadway.
Dolly has not yet had the courage to leave the fields of North East Scotland. But things are about to change, as Colin is on his way home, returning to join the MacSporran family in their annual celebration of Robbie Burns birthday. Colin has a surprise for Dolly. In his position as travel writer for the adventure company Farmyard Escapes, he has made many contacts. One of whom, the famous Broadway musical director, Billy Goat, has agreed to audition Dolly for a leading role in his forthcoming remake of a classic musical comedy. If all goes to plan Dollys dream of Broadway will soon become reality
