We can’t wait to go to London in February. It will be the first time for Kaitlin and Jack, they are super excited. Myself and Neil have been several times before. We feel it wouldn’t be a complete trip if we didn’t go and see a West End Show. There are so many shows to choose from in London, the choice is amazing. We have looked at them all and have decided Wicked will be perfect for us. I love going to theatre and can’t wait for the kids to experience a West End show.
WICKED, the West End musical phenomenon that tells the incredible untold story of the Witches of Oz. The show has now been seen by 8 million people in London alone. They are currently booking for all performances until Saturday 4 November 2017 at London’s Apollo Victoria Theatre.
Acclaimed as “a wicked and wonderful vision of Oz” (London Evening Standard) and “still a phenomenon after ten years in the West End” (The Daily Telegraph), the celebrated stage musical joins Les Misérables, The Phantom of the Opera, Mamma Mia! and Disney’s The Lion King as one of the top five longest-running musicals currently playing in West End and is already the 18th longest running show in West End theatre history. Around the world, Wicked has now been seen by 50 million people in 14 countries, and won over 100 major awards.
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 is proud to support 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.
