Burnie's turn to get Wicked

Thursday, 13 October 2016

Wicked – the untold story of the Witches of Oz, kicks off at the Burnie Arts & Function Centre from Friday 21 October 2016.

Presented by the Burnie Musical Society and directed by Tim McLaren, this production is sure to entertain audiences throughout the nine performance season.

Wicked tells the incredible untold story of an unlikely but profound friendship between two girls who first meet as sorcery students at Shiz University: the blonde and very popular Glinda and a misunderstood green girl named Elphaba.

Following an encounter with The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, their friendship reaches a crossroads and their lives take very different paths. Glinda's unflinching desire for popularity sees her seduced by power while Elphaba's determination to remain true to herself, and to those around her, will have unexpected and shocking consequences for her future.

Their extraordinary adventures in Oz will ultimately see them fulfil their destinies as Glinda the Good and the Wicked Witch of the West.
