Buzz has been building for the Wizard of Oz all season, thanks in part to the fantastic CBC reality show 'Over the Rainbow', which allowed the Canadian public to vote for the young lady they wanted to portray Dorothy. Danielle Wade was the chosen one. The show began performances on December 20th at the Ed Mirvish Theatre. Click below to listen to the audience's first impressions!
The show was created by Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber and features the original British creative team, including Director Jeremy Sams and Choregrapher Arlene Phillips. The cast features Cedric Smith as The Wizard, Lisa Horner as The Wicked Witch, Jamie McKnight as The Scarecrow, Mike Jackson as The Tin Man, Lee MacDougall as The Cowardly Lion, Robin Evan Willis as Glinda the Good Witch and Charlotte Moore as Auntie Em.
Tickets can be purchased in person at the box office, by phone at 416-872-1212 or online at www.mirvish.com. For more information on The Wizard of Oz Toronto, you can visit their official website, check them out on Facebook or follow them on Twitter at @WizardofOzTO.
