is it true that this'll be ALW's next venture? I've heard so many things about this, so i'm rather confuzzled... :roll: including that it might be his next search for the west end... :D :D :D any ideas on how old you'd have to be to auditoin if this were to be the case?
thanks, guys :)

apparently its looking for dorothy for a west end production and munchkins as a smaller part, like oliver was last year. although i've also read that they'll be looking for toto as the side thing.

but its the 2010 show, this years being missed out. so i dont think there'll be any information for a little while yet :( im dying to know! haha

Also, there's an article kicking about that says ALW has asked Liza Minelli to be on the judging panel.

not sure how reliable that is, just thought i'd mention :)

It looks like it's all back on again - The Stage is a pretty reputable source and I've just read this article....

http://www.thestage.co.uk/news/newsstory.php/25534/bbc1-show-seeks-dorothy-for-new-west-end-show

So all of you Dorothy hopefuls, break a leg!
