Wicked Defies Gravity Over Manchester!

Our city has been painted green for Halloween with a visit from our favourite WICKED witch but the visit doesn't stop here! Elphaba and the cast of Wicked will be returning to Manchester this Christmas for 5 whole weeks, from 4 December 2018 to 5 January 2019, which will mark the end of the multi record-breaking, critically acclaimed tour.

WICKED, the West End and Broadway musical sensation that tells the incredible untold story of the Witches of Oz, celebrate Halloween and its final return to Manchester this Christmas with an exclusive photo-shoot of Elphaba ‘Defying Gravity’ on the top of King Street Townhouse.

One of the most successful productions in the Palace Theatre’s history, the tour of the West End and Broadway sensation was previously seen by almost 150,000 theatregoers during its celebrated premiere engagement in 2013. Following its sensational Manchester premiere, the production subsequently travelled across the UK and Ireland twice as well as to cities China, the Philippines, Singapore and Switzerland. After an epic 27,000-mile journey across 5 countries, the celebrated touring production will complete its run in Manchester on 5 January 2019 having been seen by over 2.2 million theatregoers.

WICKED transports audiences to a stunningly re-imagined world of Oz and is already the 6th longest running Broadway show of all time and the 14th longest running West End show of all time.  Around the world, WICKED has been seen by almost 60 million people and won more than 100 major awards, including three Tony Awards on Broadway and two Olivier Awards in the UK.

The acclaimed cast of 31 features Amy Ross as Elphaba, Helen Woolf as Glinda, Aaron Sidwell (best known as ‘Steven Beale’ in EastEnders) as Fiyero, Steven Pinder (best known as ‘Max Farnham’ in Brookside) as The Wizard & Doctor Dillamond, Kim Ismay as Madame Morrible, Emily Shaw as Nessarose and Iddon Jones as Boq. Nikki Bentley is Standby for Elphaba.

Shhh... It's a secret, but choose Tuesday - Thursday performances for the best seat and price options. If anyone asks - we didn't tell you!

Head over to to book your tickets now. Do it. Do it right now before Elphaba climbs on her broomstick one last time over Manchester on 5th January 2019.
