Wicked musical will be returning to Dallas Texas in April 10 and the performances at Music Hall At Fair Park continue through May 05, 2013.

Wicked broke box office records and sold out in record time in 2005, 2007 and again in 2010. “I’m very pleased that we have been able to secure a return of “Wicked” for Dallas,” said Michael Jenkins, President and Managing Director of Dallas Summer Musicals. “Since every seat of the Music Hall at Fair Park was sold for the musical’s previous three engagements, we were unable to accommodate large numbers of people who wanted tickets to this wonderful show. In my opinion, the national tour is even better than the Broadway production, which I also loved.”

Wicked Music Hall At Fair Park Schedule:
Tuesday to Friday – 7:30 PM
Saturday – 1:30 PM and 7:30 PM
Sunday – 1:30 PM and 7:30 PM
Additional shows on Thursday Apr 11 and Apr 25 at 1:30 PM

Long before Dorothy drops in, two other girls meet in the Land of Oz. One – born with emerald-green skin – is smart, fiery and misunderstood. The other is beautiful, ambitious and very popular. “Wicked” tells the story of their remarkable odyssey, and how these two unlikely friends grow to become the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good.

Dallas Summer Musicals, Inc. (DSM) has announced their 73rd season of shows, with seven touring Broadway productions coming to the Music Hall at Fair Park. The mega-hit Wicked musical is included in the schedule.

Wicked musical will be returning to Dallas for four weeks from April 10 to May 5, 2013. DSM chief Michael Jenkins swears this is the most requested musical in his poll of patrons. So he’s hauling back the witches, Munchkins and flying monkeys for a fourth go-round. It is one of the great Broadway hits (it’s still running there). If you saw any of the previous tours that came to Dallas, you’d have seen actress Stephanie J. Block, now a big Broadway star (she’s prepping the New York revival of The Mystery of Edwin Drood), as Elphaba, and Smash star Megan Hilty as Glinda.

So much happened before Dorothy dropped in! Variety calls WICKED “a cultural phenomenon,” and it has broken box office records and sold out every time it has played Dallas. Wicked is “Broadway’s biggest blockbuster,” according to The New York Times. Long before that girl from Kansas arrives in Munchkinland, two girls meet in the land of Oz. One—born with emerald green skin—is smart, fiery and misunderstood. The other is beautiful, ambitious and very popular. How these two grow to become the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good Witch makes for “the most complete—and completely satisfying—new musical in a long time.” (USA Today).

Under the lights, they danced. They twirled and snapped and stomped until beads of sweat slid off their chins.

“Five, six, seven, eight! Left, two, three, four!” shouted Jeremy McQueen, a featured dancer in Wicked, currently at Fair Park Music Hall through June 27.

McQueen and Sterling Masters, who plays the mother of the Green Witch, taught about 80 people some wicked dance moves Saturday at the Majestic Theatre. For nearly two hours, the pair glided across the stage and entranced onlookers.

The contemporary music blasting onstage was a sharp contrast to the ruby-colored velvet seats and towering chandeliers of the historic theater. The likes of John Wayne, Mae West and Bing Crosby have performed at the Majestic, and some of the workshop participants were inspired by the history there, convinced that music and dancing connects people.

Alex Sutherland, a 15-year-old from Carrollton with curly red hair and amber eyes, wants to be a cast member of Wicked one day. When she first stepped onto the old stage, she thought it was kind of “creepy.”

“But it’s an honor to dance where famous people have stepped,” she said.

McQueen warned the group that in performing arts, nothing is fresh.

“Everything we consider new today isn’t new at all,” he said, snapping his fingers for effect.

One young Dallas woman has dreamed for several years of taking pointers from professionals. When she lived in Mexico City, Ana Larranaga danced in a theater company and fell in love with Wicked.

Yesterday, the 17-year-old twirled and tapped next to her heroes.

“When I’m on the stage, I feel openness,” she said of dancing. “Throughout the years, theater can change, but it always will connect us.”

Two hours after she entered the “creepy” halls of the Majestic, Sutherland was even more inspired to continue her career in dance.

“I love moving my body in different ways and expressing emotion and telling stories,” she said. “And this just makes me want to be in the show even more.”
