IF YOU THINK YOU KNOW THE WICKED WITCH OF THE WEST, THINK AGAIN…
Wicked: The Untold Story of the Witches of Oz, is the award-winning musical based on Gregory Maguire’s novel, Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West, which is an alternative telling of the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz and L. Frank Baum’s classic story, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz.

The story is told from the perspective of the witches of Oz. It begins before Dorothy’s arrival to Oz, and continues after she has left, but it also includes several references to the 1939 film and Baum’s novel. Wicked tells the story of two unlikely friends, Elphaba (the Wicked Witch of the West) and Glinda (the Good Witch), who struggle against each other through opposing personalities and viewpoints, rivalry over a shared love-interest, reactions to the Wizard’s corrupt government and, ultimately, Elphaba’s public fall from grace.
The West End production received 5 Laurence Olivier Award nominations and later won the Audience Award for Most Popular Show at the 2010 award ceremony.
Wicked currently stars Willemijn Verkaik (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).
