Wicked stars Alice Fearn and Sophie Evans will continue in their current roles of Elphaba and Glinda respectively, it has been announced, with Chris Jarman, Rosa O’Reilly and the previously announced David Witts all joining the company from Monday 23 July.

Jarman will take on the role of Doctor Dillamond, while O’Reilly, currently a cast member of the hit musical, will assume the part of Nessarose.

Also staying on in the world class West End musical are Melanie La Barrie (Madame Morrible), Andy Hockley (The Wizard), Jack Lansbury (Boq), Laura Pick (Standby for Elphaba), and Carina Gillespie and Maria Coyne (both Standby for Glinda).

Bradley Jaden (Fiyero), Sarah McNicholas (Nessarose) and original cast member Martin Ball (Doctor Dillamond) will all therefore play their final performances at the Apollo Victoria Theatre on Saturday 21 July 2018.

It’s another iconic West End show in the career of Jarman, who most recently played Hagrid and the Sorting Hat in the original London cast of Harry Potter And The Cursed Child. He also previously played The General in the original cast of The Book Of Mormon. O’Reilly, meanwhile, originally joined the London cast of Wicked in August 2016, and has already played the role of Nessarose on numerous occasions.

Based on the best-selling novel by Gregory Maguire that ingeniously re-imagines the stories and characters created by L. Frank Baum in ‘The Wonderful Wizard of Oz’, Wicked is the extraordinary tale of an unlikely but profound friendship between two sorcery students. Their extraordinary adventures in Oz will ultimately see them fulfil their destinies as Glinda The Good and the Wicked Witch of the West.

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.

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.
