Accompanied by a live band and joined by some to-be-announced special guests, Verkaik  will take a journey through some of the greatest classic and contemporary musicals of all time, as well as celebrating some of the iconic songs that have defined her career so far.

Last year Verkaik won West End Frame’s Best West End Debut Award for her portrayal of Elphaba in Wicked (Apollo Victoria). The Dutch star first played the role in Germany in 2007. She then starred as Elphaba in Holland before joining the Broadway company, making her the only actress to have played the iconic character in three different languages. Following a successful stint in New York, Verkaik joined the London production to tremendous acclaim. 

Verkaik  is the voice of Elsa in the German and Dutch language versions of Disney's Frozen which is the highest grossing animated movie of all time. She recently played Paulina in the West End premiere of Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown (Playhouse Theatre).

Her theatre credits also include: Donna in Mamma Mia (Stuttgart, Germany), Songs For A New World (Stuttgart, Germany), Amneris in Aida (Tecklenburg, Germany) and Killer Queen in We Will Rock You (Cologne, Germany). It was recently announced that Verkaik will take over as Kala in Disney's musical adaptation of Tarzan in Germany at the end of August.
