Hit musical Wicked will return to Brisbane next year

THE hit musical Wicked will return to cast a new spell over Brisbane next year.

The Tony Award-winning musical's 10th anniversary tour starts in Melbourne next week.

The show will open at QPAC on February 15, 2015 following its Sydney season, which starts this September.

"I'm thrilled we're able to bring Wicked back to Brisbane as part of its 10th anniversary tour," said producer John Frost.

"This is one of the most lavish musical productions to have ever toured Australia, the full Broadway experience. You can see every dollar spent on the magnificent sets and lush costumes, a feast for the eye and the ear. If you missed it last time, come and see Wicked for the first time, and if you have seen it before, I know you'll want to come back and be spellbound all over again."

The Australian cast recently completed a sell-out tour in Manila, where the show broke box office records for the number of tickets sold in one week.

The musical is based on the novel by Gregory Maguire and follows the early lives of the good and evil witches made famous in the 1939 movie The Wizard of Oz.

Legally Blonde the Musical star Lucy Durack will reprise her role as Glinda and Jemma Rix will reprise her role as the green-skinned witch Elphaba.

Maggie Kirkpatrick also returns as Madame Morrible.

Tickets for the Brisbane season go on sale on June 23.
