We Will Rock You casts Dorothy contestant

Thursday, 12th Aug 2010  

Jenny Douglas is set to join We Will Rock You after appearing on Over the Rainbow.

The Scottish performer will take on the role of femme fatale Meat in the production, having beaten off several other girls to clinch the role.

After having reached the final of the BBC One show in search for a girl to star in a new production of The Wizard of Oz, the 18-year-old auditioned for the role in the musical based around the music of Queen.

Her mother Mary told the Scotsman that her daughter had to go through five auditions before eventually landing the part.

"She worked so hard to get it and we're just so thrilled she did," she told the news source.

There are set to be two performers from the prime time show in the new production of Smokey Joe's Cafe, with Jessica Robinson taking over from Stephanie Fearon for three days in August.
