Based on the acclaimed novel by Gregory Maguire that 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 girls who first meet as sorcery students: the blonde, popular Glinda, and the misunderstood, shy, green Elphaba.

When the two encounter the Wonderful Wizard of Oz, their fortunes see them embark on very different paths, and their extraordinary adventures in Oz will ultimately see them fulfil their destinies as Glinda the Good and the Wicked Witch of the West.

Dinosaur World Live

Children’s   |   Running Time: 50mins    |   Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre

Grab your compass and join our intrepid explorer across uncharted territories to discover a pre-historic world of astonishing (and remarkably life-like) dinosaurs – including every child’s favourite flesh-eating giant, the Tyrannosaurus Rex! During your Jurassic adventures, you’ll also encounter the likes of a Triceratops, a Giraffatitan, a Microraptor, and a Segnosaurus!

Guiding you through the island is the daughter of a palaeontologist, Miranda, who knows the dinosaurs like the back of her hand. She grew up on a far-away island off the coast of South America, surrounded by her dino-friends. And now, she’s taken her prehistoric pals with her to Wembley Park to introduce them to you – but be warned that they might not all be as calm they may first seem! Audience members can even meet and greet the dinosaurs in person after the show.
