The blockbuster musical returns to Melbourne in 2014
It's the musical that even non-musical people know. It's launched plenty of Aussie theatre stars' careers. And we still have 'Defying Gravity' stuck in our head. Yep, Wicked the musical is celebrating its 10th anniversary and returning to its original Australian home. The Oz-tastic musical will see Lucy Durack and Jemma Rix returning to their respective starring roles of Glinda and Elphaba, alongside Maggie Kirkpatrick, Steve Danielsen, Glen Hogstrom and Emily Cascarino. And the latest addition to the cast? Reg Livermore as the wizard! Veterans of musicals will have seen Reg in Hair, Jesus Christ Superstar and in The Rocky Horror Show as Doctor Frank'n'Furter.
There will be a special final dress rehearsal charity performance on Sun May 4 at 6.30pm. Previews run from May 6-9, with the season proper kicking off on Sat May 10 at 8pm.
