ABOUT THE SHOW:
Back by “popular” demand. Variety calls WICKED “a cultural phenomenon,” and it continues to break box office records across North America. Winner of over 100 international awards., including a Grammy® and three Tony Awards®, WICKED is “Broadway’s biggest blockbuster” (The New York Times). Long before that girl from Kansas arrives in Munchkinland, two girls meet in the land of Oz. One–born with emerald green skin–is smart, fiery and misunderstood. The other is beautiful, ambitious and very popular. How these two grow to become the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good makes for “the most complete, and completely satisfying, musical in a long time” (USA Today).
This show is appropriate for theatergoers ages 8 and up. Children under the age of 4 will not be permitted. For the consideration of all patrons, children on laps and/or babes in arms are not permitted at most Victoria Theatre Association presentations.
2 hours, 50 minutes (there is one 20 minute intermission)
AFTER THE SHOW:
Extend the experience! Join us for drinks and conversation after the show on Saturday, May 2 and May 9 from 10 p.m -12 a.m. There’ll be music, a cash bar and no cover charge! This event is free, but you must have a ticket to that night’s performance.
