THE eerie shadow of a wicked witch has been spotted zooming past Wearside landmarks on her broomstick.
But there’s no cause for alarm.
The shadows were in fact projections beamed onto the Sunderland Empire, Hylton Castle and Durham Castle to promote the box office opening for the Sunderland leg of the Wicked tour.
Earlier this month the Echo revealed that the West End musical would be casting a spell over Wearside from March 31 to April 25 next year.
l Tickets for Wicked at the Sunderland Empire, priced from £20 to £55, go on general sale on Monday from 10am.
They will be available in person from the Sunderland Empire box office, on Tel. 0844 871 3022 and online from www.atgtickets.com/sunderland.
