Something Wicked this way comes...

Cast members of the internationally acclaimed musical touched down in style in Auckland yesterday.

Puffs of green smoke welcomed characters Glinda and Elphaba as they arrived on a helicopter at Mechanics Bay.

The pair are in town to promote Wicked, which will play for the first time at the Civic Theatre, from September.

The musical, which celebrates 10 years of production this year, follows the story of two girls who meet in the land of Oz. They grow up to be the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good.

The musical - an international Broadway musical blockbuster - regularly plays to packed theatres and has been adapted to several other languages.
