Title: Wicked -Teejay
Post by: Teejay on July 08, 2018, 01:19:19 am
I was taken to see Wicked for my birthday treat
and i was mezmerized

it was on for a week at the grand theatre (the oldest theatre we have and its very beautiful)


i sat way up high in the balcony and was transported into a world of colour music fun and tears..
i wish i could have bought a dvd of it ..but it was a play so that is impossible.


it left a lasting impression on me least of all the dragon that was moving above the stage,,with glowing eyes ...
i took a pic with my phone ...just a min i will see if i can email it to me and get it on here.

 i think i did it

the brown thing with the green thing in the middle is the stage curtain ..its got the map of Oz on it and the emerald city is the green..

wow  i LOVED every second of this.

 :wow3:   What a wonderful treat for you!!!   I LOVE stage plays but haven't been to see one in a while. They have become un-affordable which is a shame.  That dragon is breath taking!!!   I can tell that you had a great time.  Would love to see that theatre!

Glad you had an enjoyable birthday!!  It's one that you will probably remember for a very long time!!  :praise53:

whoooooooooooo hoooooo MaryLou

you are right it was a great suprise and treat
the tickets were for the balcony  waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay up high and my daughter got 4 because someone at her work could not go and they were going cheap 26 each ...thats an expensive cheap ... but worth every penny

The story is about the wicked witch of the west in the wizard of oz
she wasnt really wicked she was picked on cos she was green and the nasty wizard of oz needs shooting...well he got his due in the play
fabulous.

Teejay, I wish we could get show tickets for that price!  Most of them here start at 95 each!  That's for what we call the "nose bleed" seats because you're up so high.  My daughter and I used to go to a play at least 6 times a year but neither of us can afford it any more.
