The North American touring production of “Wicked,” which experienced its Wisconsin premiere in 2009 at the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center in downtown Appleton, is returning Wednesday to the PAC. The show, which plays in Appleton through Sunday, February 20, is back by popular demand, said PAC executive vice president Maria Van Laanen.

“When it was here the first time, and the fact that it was a state premiere, the tickets flew out the door,” Van Laanen said. “It’s popular everywhere it goes, but I think here the audiences really connected with the different storylines and the fact every time you go you can pick up a different thread of the show and a new nuance. We really pride ourselves on being the community’s performing arts center, and we’re so grateful for everything the community does to help us be the first place in the state where some of these shows come. We’re interested in learning what the community wants to see and doing the very best we can to bring it to them.”

In “Wicked” the friendship between the young women Elphaba and Galinda is anything but instantaneous. They’re college roommates with no common ground who are more likely competitors.

In the world of Broadway, shows about friendships are rare finds, says Winnie Holzman, who is the book writer for the musical “Wicked.”

Wicked will be performing through Sunday, February 20 in Fox Cities Performing Arts Center, Appleton WI.
