On Saturday, a day after Maddox turned 10, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt treated their eldest to a matinee performance of Wicked. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s plan, as they took their brood out in London today to see the West End smash hit musical Wicked. The family had clearly fallen under the production’s spell too, and were seen beaming broadly as they left Victoria’s Apollo Theatre to get a car back to their base in Richmond.

Daughter Shiloh, five, in particular seemed smitten by the show, and left clutching a cute winged monkey, a stuffed toy version of one of the show’s fantastical characters. She and Maddox were joined by sister Zahara, six, and Pax, seven with three-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne deemed a bit too young for the afternoon’s entertainment.

Brad, 47, however was far more casual in a dark indigo shirt, denim jeans and black boots. He had taken some time out from filming his latest movie World War Z in London to join his family for the matinee performance.

Angelina, 36, looked rather dressed up considering. Angelina certainly wants to make sure her children are seeing all the sights London has to offer, and last week, took them to the city’s Aquarium while Brad was busy.

The cast members were said to be delighted to have the famous family come to see their Wizard of Oz themed show. ‘There was definitely a big excitement backstage! Everyone was on a high,’ a Wicked cast member told Us Weekly. The family did not sit in a VIP box but sat in the orchestra area and were surrounded by a few empty, reserved seats to maintain their privacy. ‘They were very happy and quite quiet,’ the cast member said of the Jolie-Pitts. ‘The children seemed fascinated by the spectacle.’

The family are currently living in Richmond, west London, renting a lavish £10million home while Brad finishes filming. Angelina has already been seen popping into a toy shop in Richmond to buy her children presents, including water pistols and pretend money. Brad is in the capital filming his new zombie movie, World War Z. He is also producing the film, an adaption of Max Brooks’s novel.

Lee Mead has spoken of his pride about appearing in hit West End musical Wicked, a show he admired as a struggling performer.

The Any Dream Will Do winner told the Sunday Mail that he tried to check Wicked out when it first opened in New York and he was performing there as a rookie, but it was all sold out.

Now, he said he is thrilled to be appearing in it himself.

“I think of myself as really lucky as [Wicked] has taken the whole world by storm,” Mead remarked.

However, given that he now performs in eight shows a week, he added that he does have to take an occasional afternoon nap to keep up with the musical and his baby daughter Betsy.

Mead is sure to be glad of his forthcoming five-week holiday and told the newspaper he may spend some of it in Tuscany with his family.

Wicked broke a box-office record in June 2010 when it was revealed that it has grossed £100 million since opening in September 2006.
