MUSICAL phenomenon Wicked will return to the Grand Theatre in Leeds in 2018.

The show was seen by more than 42,000 people during its first engagement at the Grand in summer 2014.

Theatre general manager Ian Sime said: “The people of Leeds and Yorkshire loved Wicked when it was here at The Grand in 2014.

“We were taken aback by the queues to purchase tickets on the first day of sale, and from there it went from strength to strength.

“It’s a testimony to a wonderful show and an enthusiastic and committed audience; we look forward to welcoming the wonderful witches back.”

Wicked will be at the Grand for four weeks from June 13 to July 7, and tickets are now on sale.

The West End and Broadway multi record-breaking production tells the story of an unlikely but profound friendship between two sorcery students , which will ultimately see them fulfil their destinies as Glinda The Good and the Wicked Witch of the West.

The show is based on the best-selling novel by Gregory Maguire that re-imagines the stories and characters originally in children’s book The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.
