What will students see and do?

Twice voted ‘Best Theatre Production for Schools’ at the annual School Travel Awards, and inspired by L. Frank Baum’s “classic of children’s literature” (BBC Bitesize), The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, the stage musical Wicked at London’s Apollo Victoria Theatre explores themes of self-esteem, identity, prejudice, victimisation, fake news and propaganda, peer pressure, ambition, and friendship.

In support of cultural learning, personal development, and curriculum enrichment, learners can evaluate the live performance, its storytelling and design, as well as the work of theatre-makers.

Additionally, teachers and learners can engage in a range of free classroom resources and lesson plans inspired by, and themed to, the acclaimed production.

Official Workshops (Wellbeing, Anti-Bullying, and Musical Theatre) and post-show Q&As are also bookable exclusively via the Wicked Active Learning in-house team. Workshops are deliverable in school or in pre-approved central London venues.

The 2000+ seat Apollo Victoria Theatre, home to Wicked since its UK premiere in 2006, is one of London’s biggest theatres and a unique heritage building. Opened as a ‘Super Cinema’ in 1930, it reverted to permanent live theatrical use in 1980.
