Diana DeGarmo Leads New 'OZ the Musical' Tour in 2/09

American Idol and Broadway HAIRSPRAY star Diana DeGarmo will star as "Dorothy" in OZ THE MUSICAL, a contemporary musical treatment of the popular L. Frank Baum story "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz," the production will begin a Texas based tour in February 2009.

The original musical was written by Plainview native Todrick D. Hall.

Direction and choreography also are by Hall, who danced with Ballet Lubbock at age 9 under artistic director Yvonne Racz, and, more recently, appeared in the Broadway musical "The Color Purple."

Diana DeGarmo shot to fame as runner-up on the popular television show "American Idol" in 2004. She is known for her amazing range and vocal prowess. Following her national television debut, DeGarmo released "Dreams" to radio, the best-selling single of 2004, and later a full-length album on RCA titled Blue Skies. DeGarmo's heightened profile afforded her the role of Penny Lou Pingleton in Hairspray on Broadway as well as Maria in a regional production of West Side Story. Most recently, DeGarmo was featured on the initial season of CMT's reality program "Gone Country." She is now signed to John Rich's production company and currently recording a country-pop album in Nashville.
