    A new cast is flying into the Apollo Victoria London from 18 November 2013 to join the West End musical WICKED.

    Savannah Stevenson will play ‘Glinda’ opposite previously announced international WICKED star Willemijn Verkaik as ‘Elphaba’ in the new London cast from Monday 18 November 2013. Stevenson's West End theatre credits include Chariots of Fire, Mary Poppins, and the Sir Trevor Nunn-directed Gone with the Wind and Aspects of Love.

    Sam Kelly makes his return as ‘The Wizard’, a role he previously played in 2009/2010. One of the UK’s most popular comic actors since the 1970s, Kelley appeared in the television programmes Porridge, ‘Allo ‘Allo!, On the Up, We’ll Think of Something, Barbara, Haggard and Black Books. His theatre credits include Sartre’s Kean opposite Antony Sher, and Grief, directed by Mike Leigh for the National Theatre.

    Jeremy Taylor (We Will Rock You; The Sound of Music) will play ‘Fiyero’, Sue Kelvin (Private Lives; Chicago) will play ‘Madame Morrible’, and Olivier award-winning actor Paul Clarkson (Mamma Mia! original West End cast) will play ‘Doctor Dillamond’.

    Katie Rowley Jones (Nessarose) and Sam Lupton (Boq) will continue in their current starring roles. Emma Hatton will be Standby Elphaba and current ensemble cast member Sophie Linder-Lee will become Standby Glinda.

    Louise Dearman (Elphaba), Gina Beck (Glinda), Ben Freeman (Fiyero), Harriet Thorpe (Madame Morrible), Keith Bartlett (The Wizard), Christopher Howell (Doctor Dillamond), Hayley Gallivan (Standby Elphaba) and Lucy van Gasse (Standby Glinda) will all play their final performances on Saturday 16 November 2013.

    Recently acclaimed as "one of the most popular West End musicals ever" (London Evening Standard), the Olivier Award-winning London production of the global musical phenomenon is already the 16th longest-running West End musical of all time and has now been seen by over five million people since its London premiere in 2006.
