Wicked prepares to land at the Morris Performing Arts Center

By  | 

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- The cast of Wicked is flying into town. For the next week and a half, the Broadway sensation will take the stage at the Morris Performing Arts Center.

But, before ticket holders can find out all that happened before Dorothy dropped into Oz, a stage crew has 30-hours of work ahead to prepare for the $11 million production.

"All the scenery, all the curtains, all the lights go up into the air, and then right now, they're working on what we call a floor show, because we install a deck on our own that the scenery travels on and has lights and things built into it," said Steve Quinn, company manager, Wicked. "Then by tomorrow, we'll add wardrobe, hair, makeup, the cast, the orchestra, and so it all kind of pieces together like a jigsaw puzzle."

To see the untold story of the witches of Oz, there's still a chance to get your hands on tickets.
