Wicked previously toured the UK and Ireland between September 2013 and July 2015. Nikki Davis-Jones, Emily Tierney and Liam Doyle recreated the roles of Elphaba, Glinda and Fiyero when the tour launched at the Manchester Palace Theatre. The touring cast later starred Ashleigh Gray as Elphaba and Samuel Edwards as Fiyero.
Last year Jacqueline Hughes won West End Frame's Understudy of the Year Award for standing by as Elphaba in the Wicked UK & Ireland tour.
