(I'm starting a separate thread for this since no doubt we will want to argue for our faves once the voting begins.)
Anyone else going to be watching this show? It's the same concept as How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria from a couple of years ago, which was in turn based on Lloyd Webber's UK talent search shows for Maria, Nancy, and Dorothy. And not only will Over the Rainbow be casting Dorothy, but they're looking for Toto too!
I really enjoyed Maria so I'm looking forward to this one too. The Mirvish production of The Wizard of Oz is set for December, so they're cutting it a bit close!
CBC doesn't have a date listed yet, but since the live show tickets are available now and the first show is Sept 16 ... I thing it's a reasonably safe bet that the first episode will be Sept 9 (where they choose the top 10 from the current top 20) and the first live(ish) phone-in-vote show will be Sept 16.
