Wicked star Kerry Ellis set to join Wonderland tour in 2017

Kerry Ellis is set to make a special appearance in the 2017 tour of Wonderland, alongside Wendi Peters and Dave Willetts.

Ellis – who is gearing up to appear in the UK premiere of Off-Broadway rock musical, Murder Ballad in London this September – is a much-loved star of the stage, often praised most for her starring role in Wicked.

In 2017 though, she’ll star as Alice in selected venues (listed below) alongside Peters (Coronation Street) as Queen of Hearts and Willetts (South Pacific) as White Rabbit.


Theatre goers can catch Ellis at dates in Edinburgh, Sunderland, Birmingham, Bromley, Woking, Manchester, Wimbledon, Bristol, Brighton, Liverpool, Stoke and Milton Keynes.

The musical is an adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and will be directed by Lotte Wakeham and choreographed by Lucie Pankhurst. The production also features music by Frank Wildhorn, lyrics by Jack Murphy and a book by Murphy and Gregory Boyd.

Wonderland opens at the Edinburgh Playhouse from 20 to 28 January, before touring the UK. Check for ticket availability.
