Based on Gregory Maguire's 1995 novel telling a prequel to The Wizard of Oz, the show is stuffed with comedy, heart and soaring songs. Long before Dorothy and Toto blew in, two young students are studying sorcery at Shiz University. Glinda is blonde, beautiful and popular. Elphaba is green... and it's not just her unusual complexion that makes it tricky to fit in. As an unlikely friendship blossoms, the conflict between power and popularity has a lasting legacy on their lives and the land of Oz.
The magical story makes Wicked especially entertaining to children, but audience members of all ages can't help but be moved as Elphaba takes to the skies and belts out 'Defying Gravity'.
