In a press statement, Dearman commented, "As an actress, you strive to challenge yourself to play as many diverse roles as possible throughout your career, and right now I feel like the luckiest girl in the history of musical theatre. I still can’t quite believe that in two months’ time I’ll be back in Wicked, but this time I won’t come and go by Bubble, I’ll be on a broomstick!"

Dearman's other roles include Eva Peron, Sarah Brown and Lucy Harris in national tours of Evita, Guys and Dolls and Jekyll and Hyde, respectively, as well as Grizabella in Cats in Cyprus.
