National Tour of WICKED Announces $25 Ticket Lottery

National Tour of WICKED Announces $25 Ticket LotteryA day-of-performance lottery for a limited number of orchestra seats will be held for WICKED, which is returning to the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center with performances from August 30 through September 10.

Two and one-half hours prior to each performance, people who present themselves at the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center ticket office, located at 400 W. College Ave. in Appleton, will have their names placed in a lottery drum; two hours prior to the performance, names will be drawn for a limited number of orchestra seats at $25 each, cash only.

Lottery participants must have a valid photo ID when submitting their entry form and, if chosen, when purchasing tickets.

The surprising tale of an unlikely friendship between two women in the Land of Oz, WICKED tells the untold story of the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good, long before Dorothy drops in. Elphaba, born with emerald-green skin, is smart, fiery and misunderstood. Glinda is beautiful, ambitious and very popular. The remarkable odyssey of how these unexpected friends changed each other's lives for good has made WICKED one of the world's most popular musicals.

Based on the best-selling 1995 novel by Gregory Maguire, WICKED is the winner of over 100 international major awards, including a Grammy and three Tony Awards.

With music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz (Pippin, Godspell, Academy Award-winner for Pocahontas and The Prince of Egypt) and book by Winnie Holzman ("My So Called Life," "Once And Again" and "thirtysomething"), WICKED is directed by two-time Tony Award winner Joe Mantello (Take Me Out, Love! Valour! Compassion!, The Vagina Monologues) and features musical staging by Tony Award winner Wayne Cilento (Aida, The Who's Tommy, How To Succeed...).
