Great news. As much as I supported Mike Snell, Fiyero understudy, I am sooooooo happy to have Tim as the new Fiyero. I know you will do an amazing job. Well done Tim. smile.gif

Thanks so much Lea for the Sunrise link. Tim sounded just so excited and I can't wait to see him perform in Wicked. He will definitely make a handsome and talented prince.

Congratulations Tim, I hope you enjoy every moment in your new role. Maybe Anthony could do a special guest appearance as Boq. wink.gif

WICKED FINDS ITS NEW PLAYBOY PRINCE


Tim Campbell will be joining the musical WICKED in the role of Fiyero, WICKED Australia Co?]Producer John Frost announced today. Campbell begins rehearsal next week to play the role of the playboy Prince, seemingly shallow and self absorbed, the love interest for both Glinda the Good and Elphaba, the green?]skinned ?gWicked?h Witch.

Tim Campbell is a natural all round entertainer. He sings, acts and hosts with an easy knock?]about warmth and infectious style. WICKED?fs Helpmann Award winning director Lisa Leguillou saw Campbell in concert at Melbourne?fs Crown Casino some time ago and knew he would make a perfect Fiyero. So when Rob Mills decided to leave the role he has played for almost two years since the show opened, Leguillou immediately knew who to approach.

?gTim has a genuine warmth and charm combined with a wonderful stage presence,?h Leguillou said. ?gHe can sing and dance magnificently, and his presence on stage is very commanding. He?fll make a wonderful Fiyero.?h

In addition to his well known television credits, Campbell is an accomplished musical theatre performer, having starred as Roger in Rent in Western Australia, in the lead role of Johnny O'Keefe in the 2008 season of Shout! The Legend of the Wild One at Melbourne's State Theatre and Sydney's Lyric Theatre, and alongside Rhonda Burchmore in The Boyfriend for The Production Company.

Campbell is very excited to return to the stage. ?gWicked is one of those visually spectacular musicals that will remain timeless. Having seen it 6 times now, I am still captured by its witty, complex and magical journey. I feel very honoured to take on the role of Fiyero and am looking forward to joining the amazingly talented Sydney cast.?h

Rob Mills?f last performance will be on Sunday June 6, and Tim Campbell will commence the following week.

Tim Campbell joins Wicked cast


By Katherine Field
Thu May 6

Australian performer Tim Campbell is following in the footsteps of his partner Anthony Callea, joining the cast of the hit musical Wicked.

The former Home and Away star will take over the part of the playboy prince Fiyero after Rob Mills' departure in June.

Campbell, an actor, presenter and singer, has been concentrating on cracking the US, but says he's put those plans on hold for Wicked.

"I couldn't pass up Wicked because it's just a brilliant show," Campbell told AAP on Thursday.

"I'm really honoured.

"I love the music, I think the script is really witty."

Campbell says he's seen the musical at least five times, with Callea having played the role of Boq for six months from June 2008 during the Melbourne season.

But Campbell says he plans to put his own mark on the role.

"I think Rob and I are very different performers. We have very different backgrounds," Campbell said.

"It is kind of open for slight interpretation so I think it will be good."

Produced by John Frost and starring Bert Newton as the Wizard, the musical tells the story of the fiery witch Elphaba and the good witch Glinda and their adventures in the land of Oz.

Almost one million people have seen the musical during its Australian seasons, most recently at Sydney's Capitol Theatre.

Campbell, who's starred in the stage productions Shout, Rent and The Boyfriend, and recently shot a small part for the Nine Network's Sea Patrol, says he's thrilled to be working with Newton.

"I'm a massive fan. And he was a big inspiration for me growing up," Campbell said.

"I love him as a host, and he's also done a bit of acting and he does these musicals. I've known him for years."

Campbell, who also has a band called The Tim Campbell Retro Experience, plans to head back to the US at the end of Wicked's Sydney season.

Tim follows on in the Australian production from his long time partner, Wicked Alum and sensational singer, Anthony Callea - making the pair truly wicked! (ok, slap me now!)
