Let Wicked Cast Its Spell on YouHave you ever wondered what went on in the Land of Oz before Dorothy arrived? The tale is rich with rivalry, intrigue and friendship from the points of view of Glinda and Elphaba, two girls who grew up to become The Good Witch of the North and The Wicked Witch of the West. Wicked Edinburgh tickets deliver the story of characters you remember in a way you never imagined.
The story begins with two very different girls meeting as roommates at Shiz University. One girl is Glinda, lovely and popular, and the other is Elphaba, a strong-willed, intelligent girl who just happens to have green skin. The girls journey to Oz where the Wizard is more evil than good, evidenced by his mistreatment of animals. When Elphaba challenges the Wizard and protects the animals, he declares that she is wicked and seals her fate.In the meantime, Glinda's desire for popularity leads her to easily be seduced by power. She becomes infatuated with a handsome young man named Fiyero, who becomes smitten with her rival. Elphaba is determined to remain true to her own code and to those important to her. The characters all learn lessons about themselves and what they value. Along the way, the audience will also learn what happens to the Scarecrow, the Lion and the Tin Man before encountering Dorothy. By the end of the story, Glinda and Elphaba have made major life choices, learned important lessons and evolved into the well-loved, iconic characters known around the world.
