Tracy meets Dorothy? Now that's something I gotta see!

The stars of last year's holiday hit THE WIZ LIVE! Shanice Williams (Dorothy) and Elijah Kelley (Scarecrow), stopped by to visit the cast and crew of HAIRSPRAY LIVE!

Shanice, who was plucked from an open casting call for Dorothy, connected with Maddie, this year's newest star who went through a similar experience for Tracy Turnblad. And Elijah, who also starred as Seaweed in the 2007 film "Hairspray," passed the torch to the newest Seaweed, Ephraim Sykes. Also joining in on the fun was THE WIZ LIVE! director Kenny Leon, and executive producer behind almost every live musical so far since THE SOUND OF MUSIC, Neil Meron.
