Follow the Yellow Brick Road

by Joy Donovan on November 15, 2010

A star was born…on the stage of Colleyville Elementary School.

Yes, that is where Kate Bristol got her start as Dorothy in the “Wizard of Oz.” Now? Well, she would be playing that same role in the national touring company of the musical. (

She was a 2008 graduate of Grapevine High School and currently is a junior honors student at Pace University in New York. Her parents are Tracy and David Bristol of Colleyville.

Kate’s in rehearsals now, and her first stop will be Nov. 23 and 24 in Erie, PA. It looks like her closest performance will be in St. Louis, and she will continue being both a full-time student and touring with the musical through April, 2011.

Even though the touring company’s calendar doesn’t have her on stage anywhere close to Dallas-Fort Worth, we’re sure she already knows there’s no place like home.
