Diana DeGarmo, who recently concluded her run as the Narrator in the national tour of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, will star as Dorothy in Studio Tenn Theatre Company's production of The Wizard of Oz. Watch the production's first preview, which conjures the classic 1939 film.
Performances will take place June 13-14 at Nashville's Schermerhorn Symphony Center and feature a full symphony orchestra.
DeGarmo, who rose to fame as the runner-up on "American Idol" in 2004, has been seen on Broadway in Hairspray and Hair.
"I'm so excited to be working with Studio Tenn in what is shaping up to be a truly magnificent theatre experience," said DeGarmo. "It is a thrill to take on the iconic role of Dorothy in such an imaginative, innovative production in my own hometown."
