St Pancras gears up for Wicked time

First Published 20 September 2010, Last Updated 20 September 2010

A search for the UK’s best Glee club will be just one of the activities in the fifth annual Wicked Day, to be held at St Pancras International on 31 October.

Wicked Day, a Halloween tradition since the Broadway show Wicked opened at London’s Apollo Victoria theatre in 2006, is a free day of Wicked-themed fun for all the family, held in aid of environmental causes.

This year’s event will see St Pancras International rail station taken over by Halloween themed activities, including face-painting, workshops and live performances by the cast of Wicked. The day will also feature the live final of the search to find the UK’s best new Glee club. Finalists will perform in front of an audience before members of the Wicked cast select a winning group to perform on stage at the Apollo Victoria theatre.

Funds raised on the day will go towards a project supported by Wicked to encourage local young people to interact with the natural environment in London and at the Woodland Trust’s Heartwood Forest near St Albans.

Wicked’s Executive Producer, Michael McCabe, said: “We are very proud to continue using our ‘green’ theme to champion and support environmental causes. This year we are particularly pleased to confirm that all proceeds from Wicked Day will go to the Woodland Trust in support of their unprecedented national tree-planting campaign More Trees More Good, encouraging and helping people to plant trees anywhere and everywhere. With Wicked’s themes of taking responsibility for your own actions, there could not be a more fitting legacy for the show.”

Based on the book by Gregory Maguire, Wicked is set in Oz before and during Dorothy’s adventures in L. Frank Baum’s story The Wonderful Wizard Of Oz. Two girls – one green and misunderstood, one blonde and popular – meet at college in Oz and form an unlikely friendship. But life is to take them on different paths as they fulfil their destiny as Glinda the Good and the Wicked Witch of the West.

Wicked is currently booking at the Apollo Victoria theatre to 29 October 2011.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

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. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

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.

While theatres are currently closed, various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows, including cancellations and rescheduled performances. Please check with the individual shows for details.
