WICKET, A New Dad's Garage Musical, Revises Classic Star Wars Tale WICKET, A New Dad's Garage Musical, Revises Classic Star Wars Tale
by BWW News Desk on August 17, 2017 in Atlanta

In our latest scripted show Wicket, we take the classic Star Wars tale, and retell it from the Ewoks' perspective. Taking the concept of a revisionist history of a classic tale (similar to Wicked telling another side of the story of The Wizard of Oz), Wicket provides a completely new interpretation of what was going on in Star Wars. If you've ever wondered "Where did Ewoks come from?" or "How can they be so cute but also so deadly?" or "How does a primitive teddy bear society have the ability to seamlessly use advanced technology with absolutely no training?" … Wicket will answer all!  Prepare for the cutest, cuddliest and deadliest creatures as they sing and dance to share their story of what was really going on in the Galactic Federation.
