The Untold Story of the Witches of Oz
Join Elphaba and Glinda on a journey that takes you into the heart of Oz. Based on Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West, this new musical is hailed as the prequel to L. Frank Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. The spellbinding show tells the incredible untold story of the Witches of Oz and how one came to be called ‘good’ and the other ‘wicked’.
Wicked truly is a show for everyone; a story of friendship, equality, love, politics, good and evil that appeals to all ages. With fantastic music and visual effects that defy belief (and gravity) Wicked is the hottest ticket in town. Forget what you thought you knew about the Wicked Witch of the West; you’ll be rooting for her in the end as over two million London theatregoers have.
The show has a brand new and original score by Stephen Schwartz, whose credits include writing the music and lyrics for the 1971 classic musical Godspell and the lyrics for Disney’s 1995 film Pocahontas. Included in the score are dance numbers, touching ballads and soaring, powerful vocal performances that not only carry the plot effectively but stand as excellent listening on their own.
Already a smash hit on Broadway, Wicked has opened around the world to rave reviews, with productions in Japan, Australia and Germany. The untold story of the Witches of Oz is about to be revealed.
