Rejoicify Brisbane-Based Ozians! WICKED Is Headed to QPAC in September 2024

Continuing the show’s Australian tour past its Melbourne season, which recently commenced at the Regent Theatre, producers John Frost for Crossroads Live Australia et al. have confirmed that WICKED will be headed to the QPAC Lyric Theatre this September. This comes just shy of the one decade mark since the musical last performed on the QPAC Stage, which was also the third musical I ever reviewed for The Theatre Sphere. An official producer waitlist is now open for those interested in nabbing early-access to seats, with pre-sales set to commence next week ahead of a general public on-sale starting 22 March 2024.

The 2024 cast of WICKED is headlined by Queenslander Courtney Monsma as Glinda and Sheridan Adams as Elphaba, the roles which will see them take on the iconic roles of Glinda the Good and the Wicked Witch of the West. They will be joined on-stage by a diverse lead cast including Robyn Nevin as Madame Morrible, Todd McKenney as Wizard, Liam Head as Fiyero, Adam Murphy as Dr Dillamond, Shewit Belay as Nessarose, Kurtis Papadinis as Boq, and Zoe Coppinger as the Elphaba Standby. Want some early insights from the cast? Check out my interview with Liam Head HERE.

Commenting on the announcement, WICKED Australia’s Co-Producer John Frost shared:

I’m thrilled we’re able to bring WICKED to Brisbane’s wonderful Lyric Theatre where two past seasons totally sold out. WICKED is one of the most lavish musical productions to have ever played in Australia, the full Broadway experience. With the lavish sets and opulent costumes, it’s a feast for the eye and the ear.

The new Australian cast is exceptional and has been embraced by WICKED fans. If you have never seen WICKED, come and see it for the first time and be spellbound. If you have seen it before, I know you’ll want to come back and be enthralled all over again.

Long before Dorothy dropped in, two other young women meet in the land of Oz. One born with emerald-green skin is smart, fiery, misunderstood and possessing an extraordinary talent. The other is bubbly, blonde, ambitious and exceptionally popular. They become rivals, then friends…until the world decides to call one “good” and the other one “wicked.”
