FC: WICKED THE MUSICAL Fan Book
1: One that many people find confusifying: Are people born Wicked? Or do they have Wickedness thrust upon them? | A vivid reimagining of the classic The Wizard of Oz, Wicked spotlights the untold stories of Oz’s most famous characters, namely the Wicked Witch of the West and her unlikely friend, Glinda the Good. The show follows green-skinned star Elphaba from birth to college and through the life-changing events which eventually label her “wicked,” introducing spoiled rich girl Glinda, local prince and heartthrob Fiyero and even the Wizard of Oz himself, a troubled man very unlike the one you may remember. As Elphaba, a passionate political activist if there ever was one, fights injustice and seeks to undo the mistakes of the past, dark secrets and personal tragedies shape the history of Oz, paying homage to the classic Wizard of Oz story while simultaneously changing fans’ understanding of it forever. A cautionary tale about love, friendship and trust, Wicked effortlessly reveals that there are indeed two sides to every story. | The tale begins as Elphaba enters college at Shiz University, scorned by the rest of the students, yet still hopes one day for Oz to appreciate her. Upon discovering that her powers have worth, she is told she may be able to meet the Wizard. | After endless battles with her roommate, Glinda, and the arrival of Fiyero, a prank on Elphaba soon brings to two together to become friends. | Dr. Dillamond, her history professor, warned her about the problems with the Animals, until he is taken away and no longer allowed to teach.
2: Elphaba has been told she has been given the opportunity to go to the Emerald City with Galinda, but not before discovering she has feelings for Fiyero. | After performing a spell for the Wizard and transforming the monkey Chistery, Elphaba notices something is not right. Elphaba runs away and tries to convince Glinda to come with her. After her refusal Elphaba ascends into the sky. With the words that no one will bring her down she flies to the western sky and becomes the Wicked Witch of the West. | Many years have passed, Glinda has become engaged to Fiyero and is one of the rulers of Oz. | Elphaba on the other side flies around Oz helping the Animals, but returns home to visit her sister. Nessarose has become the Governor and due to a spell mishap, has turned her love Boq into a tin man. | Elphaba returns to the Emerald City where she succeeds in setting the monkeys free and runs off with Fiyero. Soon after, Elphaba feels something has gone wrong with her sister and she runs to her side to find that a house has fallen on her.
3: Elphaba and Glinda fight over Nessa’s death and Fiyero, when the Gale Force comes to capture Elphaba. Fiyero steps in to save her, but tells Elphaba to run off and instead is captured. | Elphaba performs a spell to attempt to save him and claims she will do no good deed ever again. As the witch hunts lead by Morrible become worse Elphaba decides to surrender. | During a heartfelt goodbye to Glinda they each admit to each other how they have been changed for good. Soon after, Elphaba is melted by Dorothy and her companions and Glinda returns to the Emerald City. | Glinda demands the Wizard to leave Oz and decides to be a true and honest ruler of the Ozians, as Glinda the Good. At Kiamo Ko, Fiyero comes to rescue Elphaba who has been hiding. She still loves him despite his transformation as a scarecrow and they decide to leave Oz together, but not before saying a true goodbye to her Glinda.
