Meet "Pinocchio" and "Dorothy"
He's the gregarious actor who will portray the little wooden toy who longs to be a real boy and she's the dynamic belter who will play the girl from Kansas who finds herself in Oz. This summer, Daniel Stewart, 15, of Santa Clarita, is playing "Pinocchio" in the Teenage Drama Workshop's production of the same name. Meanwhile, Lindsay Kazan, 17, of West Hills, is playing "Dorothy" in "The Wiz." Both are in their 2nd summer at TADW. (Last year, Stewart played "Ryan" and Kazan played "Gabriella" in TADW's production of "Disney's High School Musical.") Veterans of numerous school and community plays and musicals, Stewart will be a junior at Saugus High School and Kazan will be a senior at Louisville High School.
