July 26 - August 27, 2017

Once upon a time in the Land of Oz, there was a girl and her dog - no, scrub that. This musical goes way before the arrival of Dorothy Gale and her pooch Toto. THIS is the story of two magically inclined women, one blonde, and one green of skin - and their coming-of-age as the forces of good and (perceived) 'wicked'. Discover the musical phenomenon of the new century, based on the critically acclaimed novel by Gregory Maguire, which explores the foundation of the Oz legend, of what made Glinda and Elphaba become the icons of good and bad, and whether all is what it appears to be in later stories.
