Wicked musical is coming to Seattle WA October 10 to November 17. The popular musical about two very different witches posits them as college roommates before they turn into Glinda the Good Witch and Elphaba the Wicked Witch of the West.

Wicked Paramount Theatre Schedule:
Tuesday to Thursday – 7:30 PM
Friday – 8:00 PM
Saturday – 2:00 PM and 8:00 PM
Sunday – 1:00 PM and 6:30 PM
No show on Thursday Oct 18.
Additional 2:00 PM show on Thursday, Nov 15

The national tour is bringing a locally-reared ensemble member, Sarah Schenkkan, who also is understudying the role of Glinda and says, in an interview with CultureMob, that she’s gone on as Glinda, now, about a dozen times. Read the interview by Miryam Gordon at CultureMob.

Before we delve into Sarah’s history, you can keep an eye out for her in the ensemble by her costumes. “I have pointy hair in the mob (scene) – my head looks like a triangle, I carry a big green umbrella in Emerald City and I wear a pink beret in the Shiz University scenes,” Sarah reports. Of course, if she gets to go on as Glinda, you won’t have to wonder if you can catch sight of her!

We started off talking about when Sarah moved to Seattle. “I moved to Seattle when I was six. My dad (the acclaimed playwright Robert Schenkkan) was doing The Kentucky Cycle here at the Intiman and that’s why we moved here. I did my first play in elementary school – a play my mom (actress and voice-over artist Mary Anne Dorward) adapted. It was The Little Cloud. I wore a cardboard cloud over my dress and had the best time. I was so excited.”

Sarah was hooked, but that didn’t mean that she was secure in whether she’d be good enough to compete in this very intense business. “I never really knew for sure that I was good enough to do this. I knew I loved it and wanted to do it. That’s where I felt like my heart was invested in and passionate, but I was aware of the business and it was a tough life.

“I did some shows at Broadway Bound and I give Jimmy Nixon (founder) a lot credit for helping believe I had talent and something special. Really encouraging me to think this was something I could do.

“I studied voice in high school with Anne Evans. She taught a lot of local kids. I played soccer my whole life and basketball (but didn’t take many dance classes). I got involved in shows at Roosevelt High School with (drama teacher extraordinaire) Reuben Van Kampen.”

Sarah is following a special trend our fair city is seeing with locally-reared theater talents going to New York and finding their way back here in national touring companies. Ryah Nixon, Jimmy Nixon’s daughter, with ties to Village Theatre and the 5th Avenue (recently starring in Rent) recently participated in the tour of 9 to 5.

“Ryah was a classmate, a bit older, but she was a person that people knew was going to be on Broadway, “ Sarah says. “And she’s doing that. And she always seemed so confident about where she was going.”

Wicked Broadway musical coming to Salt Lake City for the second time. Wicked will be performing at Capitol Theatre – UT from July 18 to August 26, 2012.

“There’s something unique about Salt Lake that we haven’t yet understood,” said Broadway producer David Stone. “Cast album sales in Salt Lake, from almost the beginning, are always sixth or seventh in the number of copies sold,” he said. “It’s only behind cities like New York or Chicago and L.A. where the show ran for years.

“But Salt Lake is much further ahead of Houston, Boston and other cities that are much larger. It’s the second time ‘Wicked’ has been to Salt Lake, and it sells out instantly. ”

The New York Times called “Wicked” “Broadway’s biggest blockbuster” and “the defining musical of the decade.”

Wicked Capitol Theatre Performance Schedule:
Tuesday to Thursday – 7:30 PM
Fridays – 8:00 PM
Saturdays – 2:00 PM and 6:30 PM
Sundays – 1:00 PM and 6:30 PM

The Broadway production of “Wicked” has broken the house record at the Gershwin Theatre 20 times during the course of its run – regularly grossing in excess of $1.7 million each week. “Wicked” has grossed a combined total of $1.8 billion for its North American companies. Over nine years, the musical has grossed an estimated $2.5 billion from its cumulative productions, breaking national and international box-office records. Since it began in March 2005, the national tour of “Wicked” has broken the house record in every city in which it has played.

“At its most basic, ‘Wicked’ is just really great storytelling,” said Nicole Parker, who plays Elphaba, the Wicked Witch, in the national tour. “I think that’s when something can last for a long time if it tells a great story about characters you care about. It just gets into people’s hearts.” Parker, who first played the green witch on Broadway, often receives letters from fans who really connected with the show or the character — a well-intentioned young lady who doesn’t quite fit in and is judged because she looks different. “Until the end of time, people will identify with both of these girls,” Parker said.

“I remember seeing a news story on the first time ‘Wicked’ played in Salt Lake City with a line around the door, and I thought, ‘That would be a fun city to do this show,'” she said.

Almost three years later, Parker will get her chance. “I’m already starting to train running on stairs so I can belt those notes at your high elevations.

With 35 major awards to its credit, including a Grammy and three Tony Awards, “Wicked” seems to be running a marathon of its own.

Lottery: To enter a nightly drawing for a pair of $25 orchestra-seat tickets, present yourself in person at the theater box office (Capitol Theatre, 50 W. 200 South, Salt Lake City) 2 1/2 hours before the show. Winners should be prepared to pay cash.
