Kicking off the run on Tuesday 4th December, the Palace Theatre will play host to the brilliant multi award-winning Wicked – a ‘behind the scenes’ story of the Wicked Witch of the West from the Wizard of Oz.

Based on the rather excellent novel by Gregory Maguire, Wicked is a re-visit to the stories and characters created by L. Frank Baum in ‘The Wonderful Wizard of Oz’. For anyone that’s actually read the novel though, don’t worry, there aren’t any animal/human orgies in this stage show.

Instead Wicked tells the 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.

Packed with thrilling technical wizardry, dazzling costumes, a remarkably funny and emotional story, and show-stopping songs including that one about Defying Gravity and that other one about being Popular.
