These are the exclusive first-look pictures of the cast of a massive West End and Broadway show making its way to Southampton in October.

Wicked, tells the incredible untold story of the witches of Oz, and here are the first pictures of the cast who will be starring in this record-breaking production when it comes to the Mayflower Theatre on October 21 for four weeks.

Based on the much-loved book by L. Frank Baum, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, and subsequent Hollywood film, Wicked tells the story of an unlikely but profound friendship between two sorcery students.

Their extraordinary adventures in Oz will ultimately see them fulfil their destinies as Glinda The Good (played by Emily Tierney) and Elphaba, the Wicked Witch of the West (Ashleigh Gray).

Two-time Tony Award winner Joe Mantello has directed the show based on the book by Gregory Maguire with music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz while the musical staging is by Wayne Cilento.

The show has been seen by 42 million people in 13 countries, and won 100 international awards and is on in Southampton until November 15.
