Joann Pettiford isn’t addicted – she’s just a Wicked fan.

The Melbourne childcare worker attended her 100th viewing of the mega-successful stage musical Wicked at the Capitol Theatre last night after making her ninth journey to Sydney.

The 38-year-old, along with friend Vanessa Hill, said she had no problem with forking out what has been about $10,000 in tickets since the show’s opening back in 2008, having paid for every seat except last night’s century milestone, which was covered by producer John Frost.

“In some ways, it is expensive but I don’t really go out … I work full-time and I don’t drink or smoke so it’s a way to have some fun,” she said.

“It’s worth it because it’s one of those things … if you are having a bad day you come out with a smile on your face.”

Pettiford said she keeps coming back for the songs and the storyline. “I can sit there from the start to the end and I never get bored,” she said.

And her Wicked obsession is showing no signs of waning.

“It’s going to Brisbane,” she said. “So I’ll probably fly up for the opening and maybe a few shows after that. And then it goes to Adelaide so I may see a few performances there as well.”

Watch the Video of the Wicked Set up in Overture Center Madison. The crew explains how story is compelling, everyone can identify with it.

‘Wicked’ sets up in Overture Center from The Badger Herald on Vimeo.

“Wicked” tells the story of Elphaba, the tragically green-skinned girl who grows up as a misunderstood outcast. As a young adult at Shiz University with her wheelchair-bound sister, Nessarose, Elphaba meets her match in Galinda, a perpetually perky, blonde, pink-donning nemesis. Although their relationship begins as a stubborn rivalry, it eventually gives way to a friendship put to the test by their former allies. Between Elphaba and Galinda, who would later re-christen herself as Glinda, the Good Witch of the North, “Wicked” tells the tale of the true meaning of friendship, and what is worth risking to maintain it. It also teaches another valuable lesson.

“‘Wicked’ tells a really touching story about how to not be worried about how you’re perceived,” said Chris Peluso, who plays love interest Fiyero in the Madison show. “(It’s about) how to be okay with who you are, whoever you are.”

“Wicked” will be at the Overture Center for the Arts from Wednesday September 22 through October 10. Buy and Save $10 on Wicked Overture Center Madison Ticket Orders over $350! Code AFF$10
