Now It will be a truly wicked March for many Newcastle Grammar School students as they bring to stage the region’s first school production of the hit Broadway musical Wicked, running 10–13 March at Civic Theatre Newcastle.
Wicked is a prequel to the classic Wizard of Oz tale that is already familiar to most people. Based on a novel by Gregory Maguire, it tells the story of Elphaba (the Wicked Witch of the West) and Galinda (who later becomes Glinda the Good Witch). The pair are unlikely friends in the Land of Oz in the time before Dorothy arrives. First staged in 2003, it has become one of Broadway’s longest-running musicals.
