INTRODUCTION

Was the Wicked Witch of the West really wicked or the innocent victim of a corrupt regime?

An ingenious re-imagining of a classic story, prepare to discover a parallel universe to the land of Oz.

The award-winning stage musical goes beyond the famous Yellow Brick Road and places familiar characters in a completely original story that serves as both a prequel and sequel to ‘The Wizard of Oz’. WICKED tells the untold story of an unlikely but profound friendship between two sorcery students and how their extraordinary adventures in Oz will ultimately see them fulfil their destinies as Glinda The Good and the Wicked Witch of the West.

An outing to WICKED not only includes the enriching experience of live theatre but also an opportunity to visit one of London’s biggest theatres, the Grade II* listed Apollo Victoria Theatre. First opened in 1930, this Art Deco venue was originally built as a cinema and includes an incredible 2328 seats, all of which are located on just two levels.

“In an age dominated by "fake news" and social media smoke and mirrors, this show has never felt more timely.”
Daily Express Online

A tale of friendship, identity, acceptance, integrity, self-esteem, peer pressure, victimisation, rumour and propaganda, WICKED has proved relevant for PSHE and Citizenship teaching and whole-school Anti-Bullying strategies. Highly pertinent for all students studying a range of arts subjects, particularly BTEC Nationals in Performing Arts, the song ‘Defying Gravity’ is also now a set work for the Edexcel GCSE Music qualification.
