Based on the novel by Gregory Maguire and twice voted ‘Best Theatre Production for Schools’ at the School Travel Awards, Wicked explores themes of self-esteem, identity, prejudice, fake news, and friendship.

About Wicked

Welcome to Wicked Active Learning, the acclaimed cultural and social education programme for London’s award-winning stage musical at the Apollo Victoria Theatre. Connecting teachers directly with the in-house sales team and providing web-hosted classroom resources (including free Anti-Bullying and Diversity, Inclusion + Wellbeing lesson plans and an interview with composer and lyricist Stephen Schwartz, discussing his musical themes and inspiration behind many of the show’s iconic songs, including ‘Defying Gravity’, which is a set work for Pearson Edexcel GCSE Music).

In support of learning outside the classroom and the delivery of cultural capital and personal development, Wicked provides more than 65% savings on tickets, free teacher ratios (with extra tickets purchasable) and a free 20-page guide to planning an education trip, including information to support a school’s risk assessment.

“With themes of self-esteem, discrimination, and identity, Wicked delivers an enriching live theatre experience that supports both the quality of education and personal development elements of the Ofsted framework and enhances our students’ level of cultural capital.”
