You are invited to attend Peninsula Grammar’s senior years production of Wicked — the untold story of the witches of Oz — with performances at the Frankston Arts Centre on Friday, May 31, from 7pm; Saturday, June 1, from 7pm; and Sunday, June 2, from 1pm.
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 crossroad 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 an unexpected and shocking consequence 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. A story for all ages, Wicked will change everything you thought you knew about The Wizard of Oz.
Peninsula Grammar’s head of theatrical productions, Mrs Melinda Slade, said: “In this production we discover there are many versions of the truth, that good and evil aren’t just black and white — or in this case green and blonde — and that looks can be deceiving. This is Broadway’s highest-grossing production and there is good reason — Wicked is epic, it’s magical and it tells a story that touches everybody. We don’t want you to miss it, so please join us at the Frankston Arts Centre as we defy gravity!”
