BBC reality programme Wizard Of OZ to search for a girl to play Dorothy in the West End in 2010

The BBC has confirmed that Andrew Lloyd-Webber's latest Saturday night talent show will search for a girl to play Dorothy and a dog to play Toto in The Wizard Of Oz, which will be produced in the West End in 2010.

It will again be presented by Graham Norton, with Andrew Lloyd-Webber judging, along with fellow judges who have yet to be announced.

Auditions are to be held across the UK in early 2010 with the programme airing later in the year.

Andrw Lloyd-Webber told the BBC: "I can't wait to work with the BBC again in the hunt for Dorothy - an iconic role of course made famous by a young Judy Garland in the film in 1939..."

The programme follows BBC One's "I'd Do Anything", "Any Dream Will Do" and "How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria?" which also found musical stars in Jodie Prenger, Lee Mead and Connie Fisher.

Looking for the best seats...
