Brand new WICKED stars Ashleigh Gray and Samuel Edwards, who will be starring as Elphaba and Fiyeroin the record-breaking tour when it comes to the Liverpool Empire on 16th September, will take to the stage, singing a selection of hit numbers from one of the most popular and longest running West-End musicals of all time. Wicked is certainly one of the most magical additions to Pride’s ‘Glam Fairy Tale’ themed event.
Acclaimed as “one of the most popular West End musicals ever” (London Evening Standard), the record-breaking London production continues its open-ended run at the Apollo Victoria Theatre where it is already the 15th longest-running musical in West End theatre history. WICKED tells the incredible untold story of the Witches of Oz and their unlikely but profound friendship. Their extraordinary adventures in Oz are what ultimately see them fulfil their destinies as Glinda The Good and the Wicked Witch of the West.
This year marks the 5th anniversary for Liverpool Pride, which was established in 2010 and takes place each year to coincide with the date of murdered gay teenager Michael Causer 6 years ago. This year’s ‘Glam Fairy Tale’ theme encourages all those attending to come dressed in their most wild and wonderful interpretations of the theme. Now as the list of confirmed performers continues to grow and excitement builds, this year’s fabulous ‘Glam Fairy Tale’ is set to be the biggest and best Pride event so far!
