Wicked has announced it’s embarking on a tour through ten cities in the UK and Ireland in 2023 to 2025, with shows at the Palace Theatre in Manchester. Starting off in Edinburgh in December 2023, the Wicked tour will conclude with shows at the Palace Theatre between December 3, 2024 and January 12 2025.

The award-winning musical, based on the novel ‘Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West’ by Gregory Maguire, tells the origin story of the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good in the land of Oz. The tour has been running on London’s West End for 17 years where it has been seen by 11 million people.

The new tour will feature over 82 cast and crew members. It also coincides with the filming and production of a two-part Wicked film, which is set to premiere in 2024 and 2025.

Wicked’s UK and Ireland executive producer Michael McCabe told WhatsOnStage: "We’re delighted to be embarking on this third tour of the UK and Ireland and taking Wicked back to ten incredible theatres in England, Scotland, Wales and the Republic of Ireland where sold-out audiences previously greeted us so ecstatically. We’re excited to have this opportunity to share once again the spectacle, magic and emotion that has created unforgettable memories for audiences everywhere."
