This past Monday the streets of Toronto could well have been interchangeable with a certain Yellow Brick Road, as hundreds of young women flocked to open auditions of CBC Televisions upcoming "Over The Rainbow", a reality show which will culminate in one lucky lady being cast in Mirvish's production of The Wizard of Oz.  The show will be hosted by MTV star Daryn Jones, and will feature the top Dorothy Hopefuls from across Canada competing each week for a chance to stay in the running and be judged by Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber himself in the final few episodes. 

The initial round of auditions were judged by leading casting director Stephanie Gorin, and call-backs for the girls given a 'Golden Ticket' on Monday are taking place today.  The show will air Sunday nights starting in September on CBC, and BWW is thrilled to bring its readers these photos from inside the Monday auditions.

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.
