Lee Mead is set to return to the West End for a roll as Fiyero in London’s Wicked performance. Mead, who is a veteran of the West End with a performance in Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is set to join the Gregory Maguire story in May. The date he would have returned to the set would have been much earlier had it not been for his wife’s due date – Denise Van Outen is set to give birth to their first child.

Mead has toured the UK with Oscar Wilde’s Lord Arthur Saville’s Crime and will return to London for what he calls “a fantastic part.” “I’m really excited to be returning to the West End in this incredible show.” The show will see Mead May 10th. Executive Producer of the show added this: ”With a wealth of musical theatre experience already under his belt, Lee was, from the outset, the one to watch in the BBC’s Any Dream Will Do. His much deserved win and subsequent performance in Joseph proved that he was an outstandingly talented leading man. I am really delighted that he has now chosen to make his return to the West End as Fiyero in Wicked alongside a fantastic new cast that will take us into our fifth year.”

Australia’s favourite musical is about to reveal a new star. In March, Wicked will welcome Elisa Colla for her professional debut in the role of Nessarose, sister of Elphaba.

Only 21 years of age, Elisa graduated from the Australian Institute of Music (AIM) in 2009 and is thrilled to be cast in the role of Nessarose. While at AIM she appeared in the musicals Promises, Promises and Dusty: The Original Pop Diva, and her previous musical credits include Grease, Oklahoma! and Thoroughly Modern Millie.

Elisa said, “I feel so lucky to be cast in this extraordinary show as my first professional musical. It is so magical! I can’t wait to slip into Nessarose’s costume and be a part of this glorious production.”

Penny McNamee, who has played Nessarose for more than 18 months since Wicked first opened in Melbourne in July 2008, is leaving the show to return to work in film and television. After performing Nessarose in almost 650 shows and winning a Green Room Award as Best Supporting Actress in a Musical, Penny says she is going to miss her Wicked family. “I’m taking away such wonderful friendships from this show,” she said.

Wicked Australia Co-Producer John Frost is delighted to welcome Elisa to the cast. “Elisa is a wonderfully talented young performer with a brilliant future. We conducted some of the most extensive auditions ever undertaken in Australia to find the best performers for Wicked, and we were lucky enough to find Elise right under our noses in Sydney. She will make a beautiful new Nessarose. I sincerely thank Penny for her significant contribution to making Wicked such a unique cultural phenomenon in Melbourne and now in Sydney.”

Wicked has won 26 major awards including three Tony Awards®, a Grammy® Award and six Helpmann Awards® including Best Musical.

Wicked” the musical arrives Wednesday at the Peace Center to cast its spell with gravity-defying witches, monkeys, levitating brooms and so much more that it takes 14 trucks to haul it all. The show, whose green heroine, Elphaba, inspires with her profound transformation, oozes green in another way, too. Nationwide, the show earns $1.4 million per week, according to Hollywood trade publication Variety. And it continues to generate income for the local communities where it plays. While total revenue figures for Greenville will come later, for its three-week run here at least nine local musicians will play at all performances.

Currently, tickets are still available for performances on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday nights. Robert Gilbert, Peace Center public relations manager, advises those seeking tickets to call the box office directly rather than going through ticket resellers.

The mega hit’s co-producer David Stone says he’s been in love with “Wicked” since he heard the first reading.

“There’s pure magic on stage,” he says. Its vivid acrobatics enthrall children in the audience. Teen girls flock to it for its story of friendship between two young girls, a bond wrought with hurts and profound implications. And all ages seem to respond to its moral lessons, Stone says. “It wears its heart on its sleeve.”
