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.
