THE WICKED WIZARD OF OZ
Xander Steyn brings you an adaptation of The Wizard of Oz combined with the Broadway musical; Wicked!
It tells the story of how Oz, a magician from Qhleberha (PE), became the Wizard of Oz. He got stuck in a hot-air balloon trapped in a twister caused by Madame Morrible. She’s an Ozian who can control the weather and also the cause of Dorothy landing in Oz years later. Dorothy’s house lands on Nessa, she was known as the wicked witch of the East, but this was a lie. Nessa’s sister – the green witch, Elphaba, was also never really wicked, just misunderstood.
We see Elphaba from her days as a varsity student at Shiz where she meets Glinda the Good and Stanley who steals her heart and who she later turns into the Scarecrow to protect him from the Wizards guards. Stanley tried to protect Elphaba after she became a fugitive when she learned of the Wizard’s evil plan to silence all the talking animals in Oz. A rumour was then spread all over Oz that Elphaba was indeed a wicked witch. The story also explains how Bok, a munchkin boy became the Tinman and how Simba became a cowardly lion.
This fairy tale is filled with love triangles, magical ruby shoes and even iPads! So do not miss this musical comedy at the Rabbit Studio!
