Wicked story of witches of Oz

Wicked, the Tamworth Musical Society production of the Broadway blockbuster is coming to Capitol Theatre from October 28 to November 12. 

A vivid re-imagining of the classic The Wizard of OzWicked spotlights the untold stories of Oz’s most famous (or infamous) characters, namely the Wicked Witch of the West and her unlikely friend, Glinda the Good.

The show follows green-skinned star Elphaba from birth to college and through the life-changing events which eventually label her “wicked,” introducing spoiled rich girl Glinda, local prince and heartthrob Fiyero and even the Wizard of Oz himself.

A cautionary tale about love, friendship and trust, Wicked effortlessly reveals that there are indeed two sides to every story. 

Starring Jessica Cooper-White as Elphaba, Brookie Gillett as Glinda The Good and Brad Gill as The Wizard of Oz, this musical masterpiece will have you spellbound. 

Directed by Stephen Carter, Musically Directed by Tim Godden and Choreography by Cherie Gaites, this is certainly going to be up there on the list of best shows Tamworth Musical Society has done. 

Boasting a cast of 36 and an orchestra of 25, there is, once again a huge sound and lots to see on stage the creation of hundreds of costumes, makeup and many wigs.

Opening night is 28 October and those audience members attending will be treated by a  glass of bubbly on arrival to celebrate the opening of what has been four months in the making. 

Coming soon are the stars of the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo, the world famous Pipes and Drums of The Royal Scots Dragoon Guards and they are marching into TRECC, Saturday 29 October at 7.30pm.  

Notably, the highest profile of the British military concert bands, this promises to be a spectacular concert, giving audiences a whole new experience in Scottish traditional classic tunes, superbly blended with modern music arrangements. The band's performance will also feature some of their major hits: Amazing Grace, Going Home, Highland Cathedral and many more.

Wicked: Have you ever wondered what happened in Oz before Dorothy dropped in?
