Special message from Danielle!

Hello Everybody! My name is Danielle Wade and I’ve traded Dorothy’s ruby slippers for Cinderella’s glass slippers! After the CBC-TV series OVER THE RAINBOW, I was honoured to be chosen to star in the Andrew Lloyd Webber/Mirvish production of THE WIZARD OF OZ, that played at the Ed Mirvish Theatre for most of 2012.

Now, I have the great pleasure of playing another iconic musical theatre character in Ross Petty’s upcoming production of “CINDERELLA, The Gags to Riches Family Musical” at Toronto’s Elgin Theatre.

Just recently, I finished the U.S. National Tour of The Wizard of Oz. I had a blast and got to explore some amazing places. I couldn’t be happier that opportunity occurred in my life. The Over The Rainbow process was so memorable. The other Dorothys and I made lifelong friends and shared so many wonderful experiences. We all remain best chums and still hang out whenever we can. Everyone is off working hard and having fun and I’m really proud of everything they’ve accomplished.

I’m really excited to be part of CINDERELLA…. such a fun show and great group of people. I can’t wait to get started. These productions have become an Ontario family tradition over the past 19 years and I couldn’t be happier to head back to Toronto for a while and hang out with Ross and Plumbum and the rest of the cast! COME AND CHECK US OUT AT THE ELGIN!
