Wicked school resources:

Wicked has an active learning programme for Key Stage 2 to 4 available via its website.

The online resources mean that teachers can combine a school visit to see the musical with classroom-based activities for use both before and after your trip.

Wicked can be linked to studies in Drama, English and PSHE as well as wider cross-curricular topics such as the staging, themes and narrative of the production.
