West End musical Wicked has announced a year-long partnership with Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity (GOSH Charity).
For over a decade the London production of Wicked has supported various UK charities through its programme WICKED:FOR GOOD.
In 2018, GOSH Charity joins this charitable endeavour, which also includes the Anti-Bullying Alliance (ABA), the National Literacy Trust and the Woodland Trust.
The show will support GOSH Charity through cast visits to entertain children during treatment and financial donations via the ticket booking system and bucket collections.
Michael McCabe, Executive Producer (UK) of WICKED said: “It is a privilege for us to be able to collaborate with [GOSH Charity) and support their vital and inspirational work.”
Sophie Powell-White, head of the account management team at Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity said: “We are thrilled to be launching this exciting new partnership with Wicked, which will combine fundraising activities and special treats for children cared for at Great Ormond Street Hospital.”
WICKED, which is now in its 12th year at London’s Apollo Victoria Theatre, is one of London’s longest running musical.
