Rockhampton Regional Council has announced another extra show for its upcoming musical WICKED. The extra show will be performed on Easter Monday 17 April at 5pm.

This is the second show to be added to the season, due to popular demand.

Chair of Rockhampton Regional Council’s Community Services Committee, Cr Rose Swadling said it was great that the people of the region are getting out and supporting this local production.

“It’s great to hear that due to public demand, the theatre has scheduled another extra performance on Easter Monday at 5pm. This will enable people who may have been away for the Easter weekend to still see the show when they return,” she said.

Cr Swadling said that while the season has been selling well since it went on sale last year, the extra show doesn’t mean that the other shows are sold out.

“There are still seats available for all shows. Given that there has been high demand, the extra show is to give theatregoers more choice in the lead up to the season,” she said.

Awe inspiring and spectacular, Wicked is the untold story of the witches of Oz. It premiered in San Francisco in 2003 and has since become a worldwide hit. Wicked is set long before Dorothy dropped in to the land of Oz, when two girls met. One, born with emerald-green skin, is smart, fiery and misunderstood. The other is beautiful, ambitious and very popular. Wicked tells the enthralling story of two unlikely friends and how they became the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good.

Directed by Wayne Scott Kermond and choreographed by Katie Kermond, (Mary Poppins and Evita), Wicked features:

Amanda Hock as Elphaba
Emma McGuire as Glinda
Matthew Dennis as The Wizard
Angelo Conway as Fiyero
Sharnee O’Donnell as Nessarose
Rachael Villiers as Madam Morrible
Travis Hock as Dr Dillamond
Joshua Langdon as Boq

Performances will be held on:
Friday 7 April at 7.30pm, Saturday 8 April at 7.30pm, Sunday 9 April at 3pm
Wednesday 12 April at 7.30pm, Thursday 13 April at 7.30pm and Saturday 15 April at 7.30pm, Monday 17 April at 5pm.
