Sarah Middleton: Over The Rainbow Dorothy

Name
Sarah Middleton
Age
21
Home Town
East Midlands

Sarah comes from a musical family - her mum teaches the recorder and teaches singing at their local theatre school, her brother plays the violin at weddings and parties as part of a string quartet, her aunt has performed as a concert pianist and her grandma was a member of their local church choir. Her mum says that Sarah started singing as a toddler when she would sit in the trolley at the local supermarket!

Sarah is currently in her 2nd year of acting training at BSA, and she has also trained with Youth Music Theatre and the National Youth Theatre. Professionally, she played Perdita in A Winters Tale with a Shakespeare company based in Derby.

She is at the stage where she has enough enthusiasm and creativity to update an iconic role like Dorothy and make it truly interesting - to make the audience as surprised by Dorothy as they are by Oz.
