The Show

A wicked and wonderful vision of Oz. A remarkable kaleidoscope of magical shocks, surprises aWicked 3nd sensations. WICKED imagines an ingenious backstory and future possibilities to the lives of L. Frank Baum’s beloved characters from The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and reveals the decisions and events that shape the destinies of two unlikely University friends on their journey to becoming Glinda The Good and the Wicked Witch of the West.

Winner of over 100 major awards, including three Tony Awards, two Olivier Awards and ten theatregoer-voted WhatsOnStage Awards (winning ‘Best West End Show’ on three separate occasions), the classic musical has now been seen by almost 10 million people in London alone.

Running time is 2 hours 45 minutes, which includes one interval.

WICKED is suitable for a general audience and contains no profanities.

Please note that loud noises, flashing lights, smoke effects and strobe lighting feature in the production.

 The Apollo Theatre

The 2,328 seat theatre opened as a cinema in 1930. In the era of ‘super’ cinemas, Provincial Cinematograph Theatres (PCT) invited Ernest Walmsley Lewis to submit plans to build such a cinema a stone’s throw away from Victoria Station. Designing the venue was challenging, especially due to having two major roads running either side of it. Having two frontages was considered veryApollo Theatre severe; taxi drivers were said to have nicknamed the venue ‘Sing-Sing’.

The interior is unique and a testament to art deco design. ‘Imagine a fairy cavern under the sea, or a mermaid’s dream of Heaven; something one has never seen or thought of before; huge submarine flowers against the walls that branch up and out and throw mysterious light towards the realms above, and glassy illuminated stalactites hanging from the ceiling; and a proscenium like a slender host of silver trees, and silvered organ pipes that shoot up to the roof; while over the whole the lights change from deep-sea green to the colours of the dawn, and from these to the warm comfort sunlight’. Gaumont – British News

The venue has become one of the leading West End venues hosting musicals such as The Sound of Music, Camelot, Fiddler on the Roof, Starlight Express and Saturday Night Fever. WICKED has been casting its spell over audiences across the world for the last decade and continues to be a ‘West End sensation’ (Daily Mail) at the Apollo Victoria Theatre, where it recently played its landmark 4000th performance.

The cost of this event includes luxury coach transport to the theatre, your ticket for the show, a three-course carvery dinner with tea or coffee and, of course, treats.
