Like/Dislike with Julia McLellan of 'The Wizard of Oz'

May 27, 2014


Dorothy is clicking her heels into town.


Andrew Lloyd Webber's stage adaptation of the film "The Wizard of Oz" comes to the Modell Performing Arts Center at the Lyric today through June 1, and Julia McLellan will be front and center as the girl who realizes there's no place like home.


The Toronto resident received the role after auditioning while a senior studying music theater at Sheridan College in Wyoming.

"I auditioned for the director and thought it was just a pipe dream," said McLellan, 23. "I was so surprised to hear that I would actually be doing the show."


On stage since she was a child, McLellan has played Ariel in "Footloose" and Maureen in "Rent" before her current role as Dorothy.
