Britain's Got Talent Singing Sensation Beau Dermott Visits Wicked And Meets The Cast Backstage

WICKED, the West End musical phenomenon that tells the incredible untold story of the Witches of Oz, was delighted to welcome Beau Dermott and her family to the Apollo Victoria Theatre at the weekend (Friday 15 April), where she met the cast after the show. 12 year old Beau’s rendition of Wicked’s hit song ‘Defying Gravity’ wowed the judges on ITV’s Britain’s Got Talent, winning her the ‘Golden Buzzer’ and immediately securing herself a place in the live semi-finals.

Acclaimed as “a wicked and wonderful vision of Oz” (London Evening Standard) and “a magical story of friendship, love and growing up” (OfficialLondonTheatre), Wicked has now been seen by over 7 million people in London alone and is already the 19th longest-running show in West End theatre history.

Wicked currently stars: Emma Hatton (Elphaba), Savannah Stevenson (Glinda), Oliver Savile (Fiyero), Liza Sadovy (Madame Morrible), Mark Curry (The Wizard), Sean Kearns (Doctor Dillamond), Daniel Hope (Boq), Katie Rowley Jones (Nessarose), Natalie Andreou (Standby for Elphaba) and Carina Gillespie (Standby for Glinda).
Cast subject to change from Monday 5 September 2016.

Based on the international best-selling novel by Gregory Maguire that ingeniously 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 sorcery students. Their extraordinary adventures in Oz will ultimately see them fulfil their destinies as Glinda The Good and the Wicked Witch of the West.

Wicked has music and lyrics by multi Grammy and Academy Award-winner Stephen Schwartz (Godspell; Disney’s Pocahontas and The Hunchback of Notre Dame) and is based on the novel ‘Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West’ by Gregory Maguire and adapted for the stage by Winnie Holzman. Musical staging is by Tony Award-winner Wayne Cilento and the production is directed by two-time Tony Award-winner Joe Mantello.

Wicked is produced by Marc Platt, Universal Stage Productions, The Araca Group, Jon B. Platt and David Stone. Executive Producer (UK) Michael McCabe.

Through its FOR GOOD programme and other charitable endeavours, Wicked is proud to support the remarkable work of the following UK charities: Anti-Bullying Alliance (ABA); the Cybersmile Foundation; the Helen Bamber Foundation; the Rainbow Trust Children's Charity; Stonewall's ‘Education For All’ campaign; The Woodland Trust and the National Literacy Trust.
