From industry wins that demonstrate its critical acclaim to accolades voted for by theatre-goers themselves, its prizes range from two Olivier Audience awards to nominations for its costume, set and lighting design – and that’s just for the London show! Once you’ve heard the illustrious songs and incredible voices of its talented cast, you’ll understand why. So why not come to the sensational Durham Performing Arts Center in Durham and experience this phenomenal Musical?
Theatre is a sophisticated expression of a simple human need — one might call it an instinct — to mimic, to project stories onto ourselves and others, and to create meaning through narrative and metaphor. We see this instinct expressed in children when they act out real or imagined characters and events. We have evidence of theatre-like rituals in some of the oldest human societies, long before the creation of Western theatre in Ancient Greece. So theatre matters, in essence, because we can't help it. It's part of what makes us human. So if you want to satisfy that natural human desire, come to the Durham Performing Arts Center in Durham to see one of the greatest shows ever, Wicked on Sunday 4th October 2020.
