Wicked arrives in South Bend

Posted:

The musical Wicked has arrived in downtown South Bend.  Thirteen semi-trucks full of set pieces, lighting, and costumes were unloaded into The Morris Civic Auditorium on Tuesday.  The process to prepare for the show takes two and a half days. 

"Wicked" has been traveling the country for ten years, but this is the first time its stopped in South Bend.  Company Manager for Wicked, Erica Norgaard, believes it can be exciting to set up in a smaller town for the first time.  "I feel like the town really embraces the fact that you are there," Norgaard says, "sometimes when you play a bigger city, there is just so much other stuff going on like sporting events, you are just lost a little bit."

The Production Stage Manager for Wicked, David O'Brien knows it takes a large number of people to make this show happen.  "We have about 100 people working to put the whole show in," O'Brien says, "It is a busy show, it is a big show, it takes a lot of people;  They really have it down to a science now."

Wicked is a story about friendship, featuring many of the known characters from the story The Wizard Of Oz.  Tickets are still available through the Morris Box Office.

A day-of-performance lottery for a limited number of orchestra seats will be held for "Wicked" 

Two and a half hours before each performance, people who show up at The Morris Performing Arts Center box office will have their names placed in a lottery drum; thirty minutes later, names will be drawn for the seats.  You'll still have to pay for them, but the only cost $25 each.  You must pay in cash.This lottery is available only in-person at the box office, with a limit of two tickets per person.  Lottery participants must have a valid photo ID when submitting their entry form and, if chosen, when purchasing tickets.

"Wicked" runs at the Morris May 8 through May 19.  Click here for specific dates and times.
