Something “Wicked” This Way Comes

Prepare yourselves for the Broadway experience of a lifetime, as the internationally acclaimed musical Wicked is coming to the North Charleston Performing Arts Center this spring!

Glinda and Elphaba, the Witches of Oz

Wicked is an insightful tale of two young witches of Oz, their unlikely friendship, and how they became known as Glinda the Good and the Wicked Witch of the West, based on the Gregory Maguire novel Wicked.

Once immersed in this musical, the viewer is exposed to a fresh perspective on L. Frank Baum’s classic story and the society surrounding it, painting the world of Oz in shades of grey – or rather, green.

Employing over 200 pounds of dry ice; a 15-member orchestra, including several members from the Charleston area; and phenomenal costuming, Wicked brings an atmosphere of sheer energy and spectacle to any stage the production graces.

Embark on this magical journey and discover the spell-binding experience that is Wicked April 18 – 29, 2012.

Tickets for groups of 20 or more are now available at 843.529.5007 or www.northcharlestoncoliseumpac.comBest of Broadway season tickets are also on sale, and include coming productions of In The Heights, Mamma Mia! and Mary Poppins.
