“So much happened, before Dorothy dropped in…”
One of the longest-running musicals on Broadway is flying into SkyCity Theatre for a limited season in September 2021.
Wicked tells the incredible untold story of an unlikely but profound friendship between two girls who first meet as sorcery students at Shiz University: the blonde and very popular Glinda and a misunderstood green girl named Elphaba.
Following an encounter with The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, their friendship reaches a crossroads and their lives take very different paths. Glinda’s unflinching desire for popularity sees her seduced by power while Elphaba’s determination to remain true to herself, and to those around her, will have unexpected and shocking consequences for her future.

This production will feature an all NZ cast, and will wow audiences young and old.
