Chris Jarman joins Wicked as full West End cast for 2018/19 announced

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child's Chris will join the West End cast of Wicked as Doctor Dillamond this July, it has been announced.

The full cast for the coming year of the long-running West End musical has now been confirmed, after David Witts was previously unveiled as the new Fiyero, replacing Bradley Jaden this summer. Current cast member Rosa O'Reilly will also take over the role of Nessarose.

Based on the best-selling novel by Gregory Maguire, which re-imagines the stories and characters created by L. Frank Baum in The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, Wicked tells the untold story of an unlikely friendship between Glinda The Good and Elphaba, the Wicked Witch of the West. It has music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz and a book by Winnie Holzman, and features the songs "Defying Gravity", "Popular" and "The Wizard and I". It is currently the fourteenth longest-running show in West End history and is also on a year-long UK and Ireland tour.
