Andrew Lloyd Webber's new production of The Wizard of Oz opened on 1 March 2011 (previews from 7 February) starring the winner of the BBC's Over the Rainbow search for Dorothy, Danielle Hope.

Hope appears alongside Michael Crawford as the Wizard, with Hannah Waddingham, Edward Baker-Duly, David Ganly, Emily Tierney and Paul Keating.

The production is helmed by the same creative team behind Lloyd Webber’s Whatsonstage.com Award-winning revival of The Sound of Music with direction from Jeremy Sams, design by Robert Jones and choreography by Arlene Phillips.

Whatsonstage.com's Joseph Pike talks to 19-year-old Hope, who moved from Urmston in Greater Manchester for the role last year, and to undertake an intensive training period at the Arts Educational school in Chiswick.
