The West End production of Wicked is set to welcome a new group of front-line cast members at the Apollo Victoria Theatre.
Nikki Davis-Jones who is currently playing Elphaba in the UK tour of the show, will join the London production on Monday 27 October, along with Liza Sadovy as Madame Morrible and Philip Childs as Doctor Dillamond.
Willemijn Verkaik, Sue Kelvin and Paul Clarkson, currently performing as Elphaba, Madame Morrible and Doctor Dillamond respectively, will play their final performances on Saturday 25 October.
Savannah Stevenson (Glinda), Jeremy Taylor (Fiyero), Martyn Ellis (The Wizard), Sam Lupton (Boq), Katie Rowley Jones (Nessarose), Emma Hatton (Standby Elphaba) and Sophie Linder-Lee (Standby Glinda) will all continue in their roles.
The London production of Wicked has been seen by almost 6 million people since its premiere in September 2006 and is now the tenth longest-running show in the West End.
While continuing its open-ended London run at the Apollo Victoria Theatre, the UK tour of the show is playing until the summer of 2015.
Based on the international best-selling novel by Gregory Maguire that re-imagined the stories and characters created by L. Frank Baum in his novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, Wicked tells the hitherto untold story of an unlikely friendship between two sorcery students who will ultimately fulfil their destinies as Glinda The Good and the Wicked Witch of the West.
