Matt Byrne Media is presenting the SA Amateur Premiere of the award-winning production Wicked at Arts Theatre, Adelaide from July 7-16, and Elizabeth's Shedley Theatre from July 20-30. Stephen Schwartz's acclaimed musical has been a worldwide box office hit adapted from Gregory Maguire's best selling novel, which tells the untold story of the Witches of Oz. As many may know, this reinvented tale is about the two polar-opposite witches who develop a friendship when they meet at Shiz University in Oz.

Comprising dazzling music by Stephen Schwartz, Winnie Holzman, William David Brohn, Alex Lacamoire and Stephen Oremus, Wicked has captivated people from around the world since it's Broadway opening in 2013. Producer and director Matt Byrne recreates this magical production, which will feature two leading ladies Diane k Lang and Katherine Jade Sachse. Lang played Eva Peron in MBM's Evita in 1996, which has instigated excitement over her role as the green-skinned witch we all know as Elphaba. Sachse was a contestant from the 2014 season of The Voice, as well as an experienced actress who performs professionally as a singer in Adelaide. Her magnificent voice will undoubtedly be a major asset in playing the role of the 'good witch' Glinda.


Dianne is one of Adelaide's leading ladies and starred in the title role in Evita for MBM, and Kat was marvellous as Penny Pingleton in Hairspray for MBM and starred in The Voice,"
Byrne said. Likewise, Byrne is ecstatic and 'delighted to get the chance to present this stunning show' in Adelaide.

Your Comment
"Thanks to Matt Byrne Media, Adelaidians will get to experience Wicked for the first time in South Australia."
This isn't correct - I went to see Wicked at the Adelaide Festival Theatre in 2011.

I also enjoyed Wicked at the Festival Theatre. Perhaps many of the people who were entertained in 2011 will have shared their enjoyment with others and there will be a new audience keen to watch the musical.
I don't think Georgina claims this is the first performance of Wicked in South Australia.
