Last night Toronto celebrated the North American Premiere of Andrew Lloyd Webber's new production of The Wizard of Oz, which features an all-Canadian cast and Over the Rainbow winner Danielle Wade as Dorothy. This new production tells the classic tale of Dorothy's journey to Oz, and features all the songs and characters you've come to know and love, as well as a few new tunes by the dynamic duo of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice.

Joining Over the Rainbow winner Danielle Wade are a group of Canada's best and brightest, including Road to Avonlea star Cedric Smith as The Wizard, former Canadian Tenor Jamie McKnight as The Scarecrow, Lee MacDougall as The Cowardly Lion, Mike Jackson as The Tin Man, Robin Evan Willis as Glinda the Good Witch and Lisa Horner as The Wicked Witch of the West.

The gala performance ended with a star studded opening night party, where the cast mingled with guests and posed for pictures with producer David Mirvish and the Totos. BWW is thrilled to bring readers photos from the gala.

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.
