Five years after their hit original production, Packemin Productions and Riverside Theatres will be defying gravity again in their upcoming production of Wicked this July and August. Starring Ashleigh Taylor (American Idiot, Wicked) reprising her role as Elphaba and Packemin favourite Wayne Scott Kermond (Singin’ In the Rain, Anything Goes) returning as The Wizard.
Wicked tells the incredible untold story of the witches of Oz. Long before Dorothy dropped in, two other girls meet in the land of Oz and formed an unlikely but profound friendship: the blonde and very popular Glinda and a misunderstood green girl named Elphaba. Their extraordinary adventures in Oz will test their friendship to the limit and ultimately see them fulfil their destinies as Glinda The Good and the Wicked Witch of the West.
