Wicked will be coming to Birmingham in 2024, it has recently been announced. A run of shows has been scheduled at the Birmingham Hippodrome from March 5, 2024, to April 7, 2024.
Based on Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West by Gregory Maguire, the musical explores the life of the Wicked Witch of the West before the events of the Wizard of Oz.
Casting for the show has yet to be finalised. However, there is expected to be no less than 82 people working on the show, with an additional 20 crew members in each city.
Wicked’s UK and Ireland executive producer, Michael McCabe, said: "We’re delighted to be embarking on this third tour of the UK and Ireland and taking Wicked back to ten incredible theatres in England, Scotland, Wales and the Republic of Ireland where sold-out audiences previously greeted us so ecstatically.
"We’re excited to have this opportunity to share once again the spectacle, magic and emotion that has created unforgettable memories for audiences everywhere."
