Wicked, one the most successful musicals of modern times, embarks on a 10-city UK and Ireland tour over the next three years, taking it to Liverpool Empire (June 20-July 14, 2024) and the Manchester Palace (December 3, 2024-January 12, 2025).

A long-running West End and Broadway musical phenomenon, Wicked imagines a backstory and future possibilities to the lives of L Frank Baum’s characters from The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and reveals the decisions and events that shape the destinies of two unlikely university friends on their journey to becoming Glinda The Good and the Wicked Witch of the West.

With a cast, orchestra, company and crew of 82, plus another 20 employed locally, Wicked is one the of the biggest-ever UK touring musicals. It played to sold-out audiences during two previous tours of the UK and Ireland, winning the BroadwayWorld UK award for best touring production. The cast is still to be announced.

Wicked has already been seen by more than 60 million people worldwide, and 2023 marks the 20th anniversary of its Broadway premiere. Productions continue on Broadway, in the West End and on tour across North America and the show will also return to Sydney and Tokyo in 2023 next year.

Tickets go on sale in June 2023. More info here
