The talented Talia Mielke has some big news that she just recently announced to the theatre/production community. She is thrilled to announce that she will be portraying the role of Dorothy Gale in Theatre Sarnia’s production of The Wizard of Oz!
Talia is a newer to the m & s Marshall production and iFilmGroup family but has worked with iFilmGroup on a couple small projects as well as attended iFilmGroup workshops and having a small role in m & s Marshall productions Blue Love as Maizie Dunne.

Talia is a triple threat with experience in acting, dance, and singing. She has been involved with dance for 11 years with extensive training in Ballet, Tap, Jazz, and Contemporary.
She is looking forward to moving on to post Secondary studies in a performing arts field. But before she does she will be putting on the ruby slippers and looking to get back home as the lead Dorothy in the production of the Wizard of Oz which picks up when a tornado rips through Kansas. Dorothy and her dog Toto, are whisked away in their house to the magical land of Oz. They follow the Yellow Brick Road toward the Emerald City to meet the Wizard, and en route, they meet a Scarecrow that needs a brain, a Tin Man missing a heart, and a Cowardly Lion who wants courage.
The wizard asks the group to bring him the broom of the Wicked Witch of the West to earn his help before the Wicked Witch of the West catches up with them. The show runs from May 10th to May 12th and then May 15th to May 18th at Theatre Sarnia. This is her last show before she is off to school. She can’t wait to go over the rainbow with the amazing people that have been cast!
