WICKED has landed in Brisbane!

Elphaba and Glinda defied gravity as they flew into Brisbane yesterday ahead of their first performance at the Lyric Theatre this Thursday. Arriving by helicopter at Balmoral State High School, they were greeted by our wonderful Wizard as spellbound students gathered around for the special event.

Take a look at the photos from the event in the gallery below.

PLUS prepare to see Brisbane transformed into a very WICKED shade of green on Thursday 12 February. See Simon Gallaher, in his first appearance as the Wizard, with Lord Mayor Graham Quirk as he plunges King Georges Square into Emerald City green. The Wheel of Brisbane, City Hall, Rydges Southbank, Treasury Casino, Kuripla Bridge, William Jolly Bridge, Story Bridge and QPAC will also be bathed in green light to celebrate our opening week in Brisbane.

See a special message from Jemma Rix and Simon Gallaher.

Ozians are invited to join us at King Georges Square for the ‘greening’ to welcome the Wizard to Brisbane from 6pm on Thursday 12 February. See you there!
