Wicked is the magical story of how two unlikely friends become so and how they end up as the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good, characters which feature in Frank L. Baum’s classic and much loved story – The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.
Galinda / Glinda and Elphaba meet at Schiz University located in the mythical Land of Oz (nothing to do with Australia). Elphaba is born the colour of emerald green with a very fiesty personality. Galinda on the other hand was born very beautiful, ambitious and very popular. When they first meet they are very suspicious of each other but thanks to Maddam Morrible they get pushed together and become better friends than either of them could of possibly imagined. Together they go to see the Wonderful Wizard of Oz who turns out to be not so wonderful. Wicked is their story…
