More cast updates announced for Wizard of Oz
Date Posted: 26/11/10
A number of new cast members have been announced for the upcoming Wizard of Oz show, which opens at the London Palladium on Tuesday March 1st, following previews from Monday February 7th.
Hannah Waddingham will star as the Wicked Witch of the West, with Edward Baker-Duly taking on the role of the Tin Man.
David Ganly will play the Lion, Paul Keating the Scarecrow and Emily Tierney appears as Glinda.
The actors will join Danielle Hope and Sophie Evans, the winner and runner-up of the BBC's Over the Rainbow show, who will share the role of Dorothy in the production, which is set to be a massive draw for those booking theatre breaks in London.
Waddingham previously played the Witch in the Open Air theatre's production of Into the Woods this summer, and has been a regular on the West End Stage recently.
She has also starred in Lady of the Lake in the London production of Monty Python's Spamalot, and A Little Night Music at the Menier Chocolate Factory.
