Oz in the News 7.31.17

Two characters from The Wizard of Oz coming to Vynl in October Two characters from The Wizard of Oz are coming to Funko’s Vnyl range this October. Fans of the classic movie, which starred Judy Garland, will be able to add Dorothy and Scarecrow to their collection. The pack also includes Dorothy’s trusty companion Toto, who is integral to the movie. We’ve got our fingers crossed that some of Dorothy’s other companions will be added to the collection in the near future!

Australian actress chosen for Wizard of Oz Dreams really do come true for Melbourne actress Samantha Leigh Dodemaide who has just landed the role of Dorothy in an upcoming Australian stage production of the Wizard of Oz, beating more than 400 actresses. ‘I remember watching MGM musicals on a Saturday afternoon with my Mum and that’s how I got my love of music theatre, from Judy Garland, Doris Day, the classics, and who better to be inspired by than them? The Wizard of Oz was definitely a favourite,’ she said. ‘If Toto needs to share my dressing room I’m more than happy for that to happen as well.’
