Michelle to play Alice in Derry 

It has been announced that Michelle will be taking on the lead role of Alice for the Wonderland run at Derry. Get booking while you can!

"The news about Wonderland just keeps getting better and better. And it's nearly time to see it in Derry.

West End rising star and Wicked leading lady, Michelle Pentecost has been confirmed to play Alice at the Millennium Forum in Derry on the UK tour of WONDERLAND, as well as Alternate Alice / Mad Hatter at other venues. Essex-born Michelle has recently appeared as Eva Péron in Evita as well as Elphaba in Wicked in the West End and in the UK tour of Annie.                                              

Hailed by UK critics as ‘fabulous, fast paced, colourful and lively with a superb original musical score and a simply outstanding cast’, WONDERLAND is delighting audiences in the UK aged 8-80. It’s an enchanting musical adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, with a huge heart, a medley of magic and a whole lot of wonder. It is a timely and touching story of love and an adventurous exploration of who we are, who we want to be and the power of everyday magic in our lives."

Teaser for Michelle's episode of 'Say Yes To The Dress' 

Last year Michelle filmed an episode of "Say Yes To The Dress" and she's just asked us to share a teaser for that episode, which is Series 1, episode 33. 

'Say Yes To The Dress' is a TV show following royal wedding dress designer David Emanuel at the Confetti & Lace bridal boutique in Essex where he, owner Christine Dando and her team help brides choose their dream dress.

 From what I can gather Michelle's episode originally aired in December last year & has just rerun on February 17th. It is available to buy on Amazon or if you are signed up with SkyGo it's available for the next 22 days.

"West end musical star Michelle wants a timeless dress for her wedding at St Paul's Cathedral. Drama queen Lois seeks a theatrical frock - can the team find a perfect princess gown..."

Michelle to the Rescue in Oz

Once again Michelle has been called on to come in to Wicked London & be their emergency cover, due to illnesses & holidays pulling out the 4 Elphaba's in the London production. Usually the lead, standby & 2 covers in the production is enough to keep the show open, but on rare occasion's when it's down to the 2nd cover, an emergency cover has to be called in, on the off chance all 4 Elphie's are unable to perform. It's always so 'exciting' when you hear this is occurring, if you ignore the fact people are ill/injured but focus on the fact you may finally get a chance to see an Elphie you missed or catch one of your favourites, one last time. Michelle has been an emergency cover pretty much since she left Wicked London in 2013, but the circumstances till now hadn't actually called for her to perform, but on the evening of Saturday 16th July 2016 it finally happened. Michelle got to don the Green make up, pick up that broom & actually perform the role that she's not done in front of a live audience in 3 years. Whilst we missed it, all reports of her return were Triumphant. With cast & lucky fans alike praising her return. Even West End Frame write about her return here.







The question then remained would she get any more shows after the weekend. Many bought tickets just in case another miracle would happen & it did. Michelle got to be Elphaba again on Monday 18th July & Tuesday 19th July. We caught our girl on Monday & all reports from Saturday were spot on, she charged on to that stage as if she owned it & gave an absolutely flawless performance of Elphaba, not missing a single beat. Have so much respect & awe for Michelle not only taking on this seemingly impossible task but doing it with such grace & poise. It's weird to think that even though someone hasn't performed the role for 3 years they could still find new ways to evolve the performance & make it even more special, but Michelle raised her own bar, taking her acting to new heights & finding wonderful ways to heighten her performance. Felt genuinely privileged to witness this & hope that she may yet get more chances to go green again one day soon. 


To see more tweets and comments about Michelle going green, check here

Michelle has been asked to cover the rest of this week & next due to illness & holidays of the 4 Elphaba's in the cast, so stay on high alert for a few weeks more & who knows we may get to see even more of #Michelphaba

There's No Place Like Home

Last week Michelle got to return 'home' to the Apollo Victoria for a spot of Emergency Standby Cover. Which happens when 3 of the current Elphaba's are out either ill, or on leave & there's no one left in the building to cover the role. So in this instance someone has to be called in who knows the role well enough that could step in should anything happen to the remaining Elphaba currently playing the role. How amazing is it that Michelle keeps getting pulled in? Michelle has sent a few snaps from her stint back home & said "What a 'Wicked' weekend I have had!"

Michelle Joins cast of Bedding Belles

On the 22nd June, Michelle joined a fabulous line up of West End talent (Leanne Jones, Jemma Knight Jones, James Alexander Gibbs, Brian Gilligan, Maisey Bawden & Rhoda Dell) to perform the role of Belle's sister 'Elle' in RoarEdgeProductions "Bedding Belle: The Musical" at The London Hippodrome. 


If you're wondering why you missed out on this, that's because it was a closed event with guest list only, otherwise i'm sure we all would've been there too. It was a rehearsed reading of this Disney Parody story & according to WestendWilma deserving of 4*'s.

Michelle sent us some pictures from the night to share.

Jezz Brazier Talks 'Snow White' with The Enquirer

The fabulous comments about Michelle's performance in this years Panto at Thameside, "Snow White & The Seven Dwarfs," keep coming. This time from their leading man himself Jezz Brazier (Prince Charming), who spoke with The Enquirer earlier this week about being in Panto & working with his children & Michelle on stage.

“You know what? I don’t mind singing,” he says. “My secret is that I actually think I’m alright and I think a lot of people are pleasantly surprised when they hear me sing. I sing a Frozen number called Love is An Open Door, which all the kids love. It’s such a wonderful song.

“But the real stand out performer of the show is Michelle Pentecost, who plays the Wicked Queen and sings an amazing version of Defying Gravity,” he adds. “She’s from the West End so it’s actually a real privilege to be performing with her.

“But the whole cast is great this year and this is an exceptional show, everyone will be left laughing their socks off.” The Enquirer, 11th Dec          

In their review 'A Touch Of Panto Class,' The Enquirer had this to say about Michelle..


So it seem's from all reports Michelle is a standout & the general consensus is, snap up some tickets as soon as possible before it's too late.

On Tuesday the 28th of October, aspiring young photographer Rukaya César had the rare opportunity to head into Michelle's dressing room for a photo call as she got her 'Eva' on. As Evita is in it's final week of the run at the Dominion Theatre, this may well have been the last time Michelle gets the chance to get into these costumes/this makeup (though we are crossing our fingers for at least one more cheeky show). What a beautiful way to capture/commemorate such an exciting venture/time in Michelle's career.
