Waddingham was born in Wandsworth in London, and credits her mother's family with her introduction to performing — her mother, Melodie Kelly, was an opera singer, as were both her maternal grandparents. A graduate of the Academy of Live and Recorded Arts, Waddingham has had a successful career in the London theatre, including her performance as Starbird in Space Family Robinson (Julian & Stephen Butler, 2002); and Suzanne Valadon in Lautrec.
Waddingham portrayed the Lady of the Lake in Spamalot both in the London production and then on Broadway. She received an Olivier Award nomination for the role. She received outstanding reviews for her portrayal of Desirée Armfeldt in Trevor Nunn's revival of A Little Night Music, including being described by one critic as the "Joanna Lumley of musical theatre". Waddingham subsequently received a further Olivier Award nomination in 2010 for Best Actress in a Musical for her performance in Night Music.
She originated the role of The Wicked Witch of the West in the West End production of The Wizard of Oz, which opened on 1 March 2011 at the London Palladium. She left the production on 4 September 2011. Waddingham won the whatsonstage.com Theatergoers Choice Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Musical for her performance.
