Wicked comes to Morris Performing Arts Center

SOUTH BEND — The cast and crew of the award-winning musical Wicked have arrived at the Morris Performing Arts Center in South Bend.

The show is based on the witches of Oz.

More than 100 people are needed to unload 12 semi-trucks full of equipment and set pieces. Some of the equipment and props include the famous dragon heads, lights, and curtains.

"It's great we're able to come into a venue this size. We're certainly going to fit in nicely," said company manager Erica Norgaard. "It will look great to see it in this theater, which is so beautiful. Are the architecture and everything lends itself to our set."

Tickets start around $50, but some may be able to get them at a lower cost.

"We do a ticket lottery. So, if you think tickets are really expensive, a great way to see the show for $25 cash per ticket is to enter your name two and a half hours prior to each performance, they draw tickets," said Norgaard.

Wicked starts Wednesday and runs for two weeks.
