Matt Willis Joins Wicked Cast
Matt Willis will join the cast of Wicked the Musical in London this December. It was announced today that the former Busted star and 2006 winner of I’m a Celebrity…Get Me out of Here! will be joining the rest of the cast at the Apollo Victoria Theatre on 12 December 2011.
Willis is no stranger to the West End stage and he recently performed in the musical revival of Flashdance last year. He is now preparing his role of Fiyero in the smash-hit musical which has been running in London for nearly five years and has been seen by almost four million people worldwide.
Joining Matt on stage in the role of Glinda this December is Gina Beck who has played the part of Christine Daae for the past two years in the most successful stage show of all time, The Phantom of the Opera. She has also acted in Les Miserables as Cosette.
Wicked the musical has been adapted from the novel by Gregory Maguire and tells the ‘untold’ story of the witches of Oz. Using side-characters from the classic The Wizard of Oz and bringing them to the forefront, the stories of Glinda and Elphaba are told, before Dorothy dropped by and shook things up.
Wicked is currently showing at the Apollo Victoria Theatre and is taking bookings until 3rd September 2013.
