London: Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice are all set to recreate their musical magic for the new ‘Wizard Of Oz’, according to reports.

Revered lyricist Rice has spilled the beans that he`ll join his former song-writing partner for his upcoming stage spectacular, ‘Over The Rainbow’.

In a recent BBC interview, Rice revealed that he would "likely" collaborate with Lloyd Webber on new songs he is writing for the production, reports the Daily Express.

The pair has previously produced ‘Evita’, ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’, and ‘Joseph’ and the Amazing Technicolor ‘Dreamcoat’.

Lloyd Webber found his Dorothy for the West End production earlier this month (May10) after staging a BBC talent show to search out an unknown for the part.

Danielle Hope was cast as the lead.

‘Over The Rainbow’ will debut at the London Palladium in early 2011.
