New Nessarose in Wicked!

Cassandra Compton (pictured) has joined the cast of Wicked at the Apollo Victoria Theatre to play Nessarose who is Wicked Witch of the East.  Her theatre credits include Elizabeth in Dirty Dancing (Aldwych); Eponine in Les Misérables (Queens); Lena in Diamond (King’s Head); Jo March in Little Women (UK tour); Mary Lennox in the RSC’s The Secret Garden (Aldwych) and Ramona in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Whistle Down the Wind (Aldwych).

She took over the role from Natalie Anderson who is heading for the Yorkshire Dales next month after getting a part in ITV’s Emmerdale playing Alicia Harding who is the brassy and trashy sister of Leyla Harding.  Her first episodes will be televised in August.
