Want tickets for £5 for the theatre?

Wicked is a brand new theatre show staring up in London next month.

Preview tickets are only £5 - including some on Saturday afternoon and evening shows!

Tickets can be booked via Ticketmaster, however I highly recommend going via the following link and then select buy tickets officiallondontheatre.co.uk/sho…806officiallondontheatre.co.uk/sho…806 as the fees are lower if booked via the Society of London Theatre.

I'm going and have tickets booked as I have inside info that it will be a great show!


Two girls meet in the land of Oz. One, born with emerald-green skin, is smart, feisty and misunderstood. The other is beautiful, ambitious and very, very popular. Wicked is the story of these two unlikely friends and how they end up as the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good Witch.

Based on the novel by Gregory Maguire, Wicked has music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, book by Winnie Holzman, scenic design by Eugene Lee, costume by Susan Hilferty, lighting by Kenneth Posner, sound by Tony Meola, orchestrations by William David brohn, musical staging by Wayne Cilento and is directed by Joe Mantello.

Wicked has won 15 major awards during its record-breaking Broadway run, including the Grammy and three Tonys.

Sounds like a great deal Fordy ! great find - Rep given

Hey ]fordy, I never new about this, going to book some now. Is it any seats at £5, or is it just certain Circle seats, as anything but the rear Dress Circle section is more than £5?

Hi X10 thanks

The seats I got were towards the bark of the circle but then again I am going on the first Saturday performance so maybe there will be a better selection later on...

Yeah, looks like it's selected seats only, those being rear circle, aka The Gods.
Still, £5 isn't bad really. £15 gets some slightly closer, but I've never been to the Apollo so I can't say how much better they'll be. I remember the Peacock rear rows are more than close enough


Just bought my tickets for the 20th September!!

Looks like most Fri/Sat/Sun tickets are fully sold out by now.

The seats arent bad... I got middle row P of the dress circle, which isn't the furthest back. But I read somewhere that for that theatre, row Q is actually better than P, as there's a bar in front of P and short ppl like me will have trouble seeing over!

Anyways, I've attached a map, as the one given by Ticketmaster is not accurate.


I recommend ]http//ww…om/ for all your seating/ticket/FAQ needs

They give you a colour guide on seats and details of what/where to sit is good/bad and why.

Well just got back from seeing Wicked - I'm not going to say what happens don't worry

For £5 it was an excellent show - it's still in preview stage and there was a 30 min disruption due to technical probs but all in all very impressed!
