Reveal your Wicked side

First Published 17 April 2008, Last Updated 18 April 2008

Wicked, the musical based on the story of the two witches in The Wonderful Wizard Of Oz, is giving its London fans a chance to indulge their wicked side for a second year running. This year’s annual Wicked Day will be held on Sunday 28 October, just in time for Halloween, in Cardinal Place, around the corner from the musical’s home, the Apollo Victoria.

Last year’s Wicked Day, the first in the UK, was held in Seven Dials, Covent Garden, and featured Wicked-themed events and activities in local shops, prizes, a sweepstake and the Be Wicked Singing Contest. The wickedness continues in this year’s event with more themed activities, giveaways and appearances by some of the cast of the musical.

As part of the festivities, Wicked is living up to its green theme by lending its support to environmental initiatives in the local South Westminster area and inviting Wicked fans to become involved.

Adapted from the book by Gregory Maguire, the musical Wicked tells the story of green-skinned Elphaba and popular Galinda, two very different girls who meet in college and become unlikely friends, and how they grow up to become the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good, characters from L Frank Baum’s famous story The Wonderful Wizard Of Oz. The musical has just celebrated a year in London.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
