The latest BBC reality TV show seeks to find a star to play the part of Dorothy in Andrew Lloyd Webber's forthcoming production, Over the Rainbow. Contestants have been whittled down from around 9,000 contenders to the final 10. Amongst them is Jenny Douglas.
Jenny has always loved to sing, but discovered she had a distinct voice at the age of around six or seven. She is currently halfway through her first year of acting classes and her first year of vocal training at college, following the Estill Voice Training Programme. She once had a singing lesson in New York with David Schaefer, saying "It was amazing, I discovered more about my voice in one hour than in my whole time of singing".
She performed in the travelling Keith Jack Tour, and also attended the Scottish Theatre and Music School. She aspires to be the kind of Dorothy who knows her own mind and isn't afraid to speak out. She would bring "100% individuality to the role".
Jenny is an only child and lives with her mum, Mary, in Edinburgh, and she returns there every weekend from the halls of residence she lives in. Her father once sang on stage with Stevie Wonder.
