Performers from Wicked have confirmed that they will be on stage at this year’s Liverpool Pride on 2 August; the musical has become the Official Theatre Production for the event.

Two of the stars of the hit musical will add a touch of magic to the line-up and perform alongside headline acts Katy B and Heather Small (M People) on Liverpool Pride’s Waterfront stage.

Brand new Wicked stars Ashleigh Gray and Samuel Edwards, who will be starring as Elphaba and Fiyero in the record-breaking tour when it comes to the Liverpool Empire on 16 September, will take to the stage, singing a selection of numbers from the popular and long running West End musical

Acclaimed as ‘one of the most popular West End musicals ever’, the London production continues its run at the Apollo Victoria Theatre where it is already the 15th longest-running musical in West End history. It tells the incredible untold story of the Witches of Oz and their unlikely but profound friendship, and complements Pride’s ‘Glam Fairy Tale’ themed event. Their extraordinary adventures in Oz are what ultimately see them fulfill their destinies as Glinda The Good and the Wicked Witch of the West.
