On Wednesday, April 3rd, Oz had a very special visitor, as Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber attended the all-Canadian production of his new musical for the first time. Lloyd Webber was in Toronto last fall for the CBC television show Over the Rainbow, which cast Danielle Wade in the lead role of Dorothy, however he had not yet seen the full production of the show.

The new production premiered in the UK, but was changed before its Canadian Premiere this past December. It tells the classic story of a girl who gets transplanted to the strange land of Oz and goes on an incredible journey, only to discover there is no place like home. It features new music by Lloyd Webber, and a stellar all Canadian cast.

BWW is thrilled to bring its readers photos from the very special curtain call.

When and Where?

The Wizard of Oz is currently on stage at The Ed Mirvish Theatre. Tickets can be purchased in person at the box office, by phone at 416-872-1212 or online at www.mirvish.com.

Kelly Cameron Kelly Cameron's love affair with the theatre began when she was just five years old, on an outing to see the Original Canadian Cast of Les Miserables at the Royal Alexandra Theatre in Toronto. She instantly fell in love, and is honoured to be representing the Toronto contingent of BroadwayWorld as Senior Editor overseeing the GTA region.

Her writing career started almost by accident, though it has always been in her blood as her Mom was an English teacher who firmly believed in the importance of being able to turn a phrase. She also loved sharing her love of theatre with her students (and her children), and was a staunch supporter of the arts in Toronto.

When not at the theatre, you can usually find Kelly with a Starbucks in one hand and her BlackBerry in the other, tweeting, reading or doing something quirky and clumsy for the sake of getting that next big story.

She's incredibly grateful to the amazing Toronto theatre community who have embraced her with open arms, giving her the greatest gift a little redheaded theatre geek could ever ask for - getting to be a part of this vibrant arts and culture scene. She may have never had the skills to be on the stage, but is thankful every day she gets to write about the inspiring people who do.
