It tells the untold story of the Witches of Oz, which will ultimately see them fulfil their destinies as Glinda The Good and the Wicked Witch of the West.

Wicked, which features show-stopping songs such as Defying Gravity, was last seen at Leeds Grand in 2014 by more than 42,000 people, winning standing ovations at every performance.

Wicked is already the 14th-longest running show in West End theatre history and around the world and has been seen by over 53 million people in 15 countries and won over 100 major awards.

It runs at Leeds Grand Theatre from Wednesday 13th June to Saturday 7th July.
