Hannah Waddingham is Wizard of Oz's Wicked Witch of the West

I have just heard another bit of casting regarding Andrew Lloyd Webber's The Wizard of Oz which is due to start previews next February at the London Palladium.

As well as Danielle Hope playing Dorothy and Michael Crawford playing the Wizard, as previously tipped Hannah Waddingham is to play the Wicked Witch of the West.  Seems Miss Waddingham is making cauldron stirring her speciality as she has just finished playing the Witch in Sondheim's Into the Woods at the Regents Park Open Air Theatre.

The casting of this production is going from strength to strength.  Can't wait to see who's playing the Lion, tin Man and Scarecrow. Rehearsals start in December so more announcements should be forthcoming soon.
