So much happened before Dorothy dropped in…
Wicked tells the incredible untold story of an unlikely friendship between two girls who first meet as sorcery students at Shiz University: the blonde and very popular Galinda and a misunderstood girl with emerald skin named Elphaba. Following an encounter with The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, their friendship reaches a crossroads and their lives take very different paths. Their extraordinary adventures in Oz will ultimately see them fulfil their destinies, one as Glinda the Good and the other as the Wicked Witch of the West.
Wicked has been hailed by The New York Times as “the defining musical of the decade". From the first electrifying note to the final breathtaking moment, Wicked transfixes audiences with its wildly inventive story. It will send your spirits soaring to heights you’ll never forget.
Don’t miss this brilliant production, brimming with the Illawarra’s brightest performers.
