Wicked

9 July - 6 September, Birmingham Hippodrome

 

Winner of 90 international awards, Wicked has been casting its magical spell over audiences of all ages across the world for a decade, and flies into Birmingham Hippodrome this summer!

 

Based on Gregory Maguire’s acclaimed novel, Wicked brilliantly re-imagines the stories and characters created by L. Frank Baum in ‘The Wonderful Wizard of Oz’, to tell the incredible untold story of an unlikely but profound friendship between two sorcery students. Their extraordinary adventures in Oz will see them fulfil their destinies as Glinda The Good and the Wicked Witch of the West.

Packed with thrilling technical wizardry, dazzling costumes, an ingenious and witty story, and show-stopping songs (by multi GRAMMY® and Academy Award® winner Stephen Schwartz), Wicked is an unforgettable, enchanting experience that is not to be missed.
