Producers Bill Kenwright, The Really Useful Group, David Mirvish, Troika Entertainment & Warner Bros. Theatre Ventures will present THE WIZARD OF OZ with an all-Canadian cast for the North American premiere.
Danielle Wade of LaSalle, Ontario, who captured the title of Canada's Top Dorothy in CBC TV's "Over The Rainbow," stars as Dorothy. An exciting new discovery, Danielle recently completed her second year at the University of Windsor in acting. This is her first professional engagement. As she famously said on the finale of the TV show: "I've never auditioned for anything before. I hope they all go like this."
Playing opposite Danielle in another of the most iconic roles is one of Canada's most respected and honoured actors: Gemini-winner, film and theatre veteran, Cedric Smith stars as the Wizard. Get a first look at the production in rehearsal below!
