Lucy Durack and Amanda Harrison have won the prize roles of Glinda and Elphaba in the forthcoming Australian premiere production of Wicked, which opens at Melbourne's Regent Theatre in July.



There's been months of speculation over who would be cast in the coveted female roles, but in the end the creative team held back on any surprises, with both Durack and Harrison considered as favourites throughout the audition process.

"There were other options, but you could see these two girls were the ones shining through during the audition process," co-producer John Frost said.

"The great thing was that while people were talking about Lucy and Amanda for some time, the American creative team had not had a lot to do with them and hence the girls got the roles on their own merits and talents."
