25th April 2007


At the matinee performance on Wednesday 25 April 2007, the record-breaking production of WICKED welcomes its 500,000th customer to London's Apollo Victoria Theatre. Di Sellars, who came to see the show with her daughter Annie, was presented with a goody bag of WICKED gifts and invited backstage to meet the stars of the show afterwards. Kerry Ellis, Helen Dallimore, Adam Garcia, Susie Blake and Nigel Planer then presented them with a WICKED poster and souvenir programme signed by the entire company.
