Award-winning Broadway blockbuster WICKED is flying into Brisbane this year, with producers announcing that the musical phenomenon will land at QPAC from September.

As one of the most successful and popular musicals in the world, WICKED has left more than 65 million people spellbound, with accolades from a Grammy Award, the Olivier Award, six Helpmann Awards, three Tony Awards and plenty more to its name. Long before Dorothy dropped in, two other young women meet in the land of Oz. One born with emerald-green skin is smart, fiery, misunderstood and possessing an extraordinary talent. The other is bubbly, blonde, ambitious and exceptionally popular. They become rivals, then friends … until the world decides to call one ‘good’ and the other one ‘wicked’.

The stellar Australian cast is led by Queenslander Courtney Monsma as Glinda, the bubbly popular girl who becomes ‘Glinda the Good’, and in her debut in a lead role, Sheridan Adams as Elphaba, the girl born with emerald-green skin who grows up to become the ‘Wicked Witch of the West’.

Robyn Nevin plays the role of Madame Morrible, Todd McKenney is the Wizard, Brisbane’s own Liam Head plays Fiyero, Adam Murphy is Dr Dillamond, Shewit Belay plays Nessarose, Kurtis Papadinis is Boq, and Zoe Coppinger is the Elphaba Standby.

Tickets to the Brisbane season of WICKED go on sale from Friday March 22.
