Theatre news

WICKED, the hit musical that tells the incredible untold story of the Witches of Oz, has announced the opening of its 23rd new booking period at London’s Apollo Victoria Theatre, with tickets now on sale until Saturday, May 26, 2018.

Acclaimed as “one of the West End’s true modern classics” (Metro), Wicked is now the 17th longest running show in London theatre history and recently celebrated a decade of performances at the Apollo Victoria Theatre where the “hugely popular show” (The Times) will shortly welcome its eight millionth theatregoer.

Around the world, Wicked has now been seen by over 50 million people in 15 countries, and won over 100 major awards.

From January 30, 2017, Wicked will star Willemijn Verkaik (as Elphaba), Suzie Mathers (Glinda), Oliver Savile (Fiyero), Sue Kelvin (Madame Morrible), Mark Curry (The Wizard), Martin Ball (Doctor Dillamond), Sarah McNicholas (Nessarose), Idriss Kargbo (Boq), Alice Fearn (Standby for Elphaba) and Carina Gillespie (Standby for Glinda).

Based on the acclaimed, best-selling novel by Gregory Maguire that ingeniously re-imagines the stories and characters created by L. Frank Baum in The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, Wicked tells the incredible untold story of an unlikely but profound friendship between two sorcery students. Their extraordinary adventures in Oz will ultimately see them fulfil their destinies as Glinda The Good and the Wicked Witch of the West.

Through its For Good programme and other charitable endeavours, Wicked supports the remarkable work of the following UK charities: Anti-Bullying Alliance (ABA); the Cybersmile Foundation; the Helen Bamber Foundation; the Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity; Stonewall’s ‘Education For All’ campaign; The Woodland Trust and the National Literacy Trust.
