Martyn Ellis to Step in as The Wizard of Oz in Wicked

WICKED, the multi award-winning West End musical will welcome Martyn Ellis to the role of ‘The  WickedWizard of Oz’ from Monday 17th February 2014. He replaces Sam Kelly who has withdrawn from the production due to ill health.

Winner of 90 international awards, Wicked has cast its magical spell over audiences of all ages across the world for a decade and continues to be a record-breaking hit at London’s Apollo Victoria Theatre, where, as of 2013, it has become the 16th longest-running West End musical of all time.

Based on the acclaimed novel by Gregory Maguire that re-imagined the stories and characters created by L. Frank Baum in ‘The Wonderful Wizard of Oz’, Wicked tells the incredible untold story of an unlikely but profound friendship between two girls who first meet as sorcery students. Their extraordinary adventures in Oz will ultimately see them fulfill their destinies as Glinda The Good, and Elphaba the Wicked Witch of the West.
