Natasha Ferguson Wicked Bristol Actress Makes Witch History

Natasha Ferguson Wicked Bristol:

Actress and singer Natasha Ferguson, made Wicked history this evening by becoming the first performer to perform all three witches in the musical Wicked.

The musical by Stephen Schwartz with a book by Winnie Hozman, is based on Gregory Maguire’s novel Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West.

The story is told through the eyes of Oz witches Glinda, Nessarose and Elphaba starting before the Wizard of Oz and through Dorothy’s encounter with the Wicked Witch of the West.

This evening, Natasha Ferguson has become the first performer to ever play all three witches in the show. Here she is in 2017 being winched above Bristol’s M Shed in a show launch for the musical’s visit to the city.
