DANIELLE HOPE in The Wizard of Oz


Danielle Hope, star of The Wizard of Oz at the London Palladium

The final of Over The Rainbow saw Danielle Hope become the winning Dorothy to star in Andrew Lloyd-Webber’s multi-million pound new production of classic musical The Wizard of Oz at the London Palladium.

17 year old Danielle from Greater Manchester is a full-time student in Knutsford, and recently quit her part time job as a waitress to focus on her studies and her dream of becoming a renowned entertainer and Broadway performer.

Danielle’s family are very large and spread out, but are very supportive of her. They try to remain realistic about her career choices as she gets into the notoriously difficult show-business industry, but they’re always there to cheer her on – especially her Nanna.

Her big passion is drama, but she has danced in front of large audiences at local dance festivals, including BBC African Dance Project at Bridgewater Hall, and the Dance House Annual Cheshire Platform. Danielle takes dance classes at least six times a week to hone her skills.

  1. Hi Danielle I want to make sure that I have the correct night to come and see you in the Wizard of Oz as Dorothy – may I please ask you when is your night off? Wishing the show every success, it was wonderful to watch the programme on TV to choose the RIGHT one, and they sure have her.
    Thank you
    Best Regards

    1. Hi Lydia

      Sophie Evans, the runner up in Over the Rainbow, will play Dorothy on Tuesday evenings from the 8th March 2011 and for 7 performances in the weeks commencing 2 May, 5 September & 12 September 2011 – so Danielle won’t be on then.
