Due to last week’s storm, and in order to accommodate patrons into the remaining performances, the Wicked ticket lotteries for Friday,  January 29, Saturday, January 30, and Sunday, January 31 have been suspended.

Back by “Popular” demand. Variety calls WICKED "a cultural phenomenon!" Winner of over 100 international awards, including a Grammy and three Tony Awards, WICKED is “Broadway’s biggest blockbuster” (The New York Times).

Long before that girl from Kansas arrives in Munchkinland, two girls meet in the land of Oz. One - born with emerald green skin - is smart, fiery and misunderstood. The other is beautiful, ambitious and very popular. How these two grow to become the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good makes for "the most complete - and completely satisfying - musical in a long time" (USA Today).

A day-of-performance lottery will be held for a limited number of orchestra seats beginning two and a half hours prior to each performance at the Ovens Auditorium box office.  Lottery winners will be able to purchase a $25 ticket, cash only.  A valid photo ID is required to participate in the lottery.
