New Judges Announced for Lloyd Webber’s Over the Rainbow

Following the news yesterday that Denise Van Outen and John Barrowman will not be judges on the new reality show to find Dorothy in a new production of the Wizard of Oz, it has now been announced that Charlotte. Church, Sheila Hancock and John Partridge will be helping him in his search. Graham Norton will return as host of the Saturday night show, which is scheduled for the Spring on BBC1

Actor John Partridge is best known for playing gay Christian Clarke in EastEnders, but also appeared in Cats in the West End.

Charlotte Church began her career as a classical singer when she was still at school, and released a recording of Pie Jesu which was written by Andrew.

Sheila Hancock brings a wealth of experience to the judging panel having appeared in many stage and TV shows.  She is currently playing Mother Superior in Sister Act at the London Palladium.

Lord Lloyd-Webber said he thought that "each member of the panel brings something new and exciting which will take Over the Rainbow even further than the previous shows".

The search for Dorothy has already begun as auditions are taking place in cities across the UK.
