Wicked Giveaway (we have a winner)

We have a Wicked opportunity for two lucky winners!

Before the theater doors open… before the orchestra plays… before the curtains are pulled…  the “load in” occurs. Load In is theater-speak for “take everything that makes up our show and move it into the Aronoff Center in Cincinnati”.

Wicked will arrive in September with eleven 52′ semi trailers full of equipment, staging, costumes, and everything else they need for the show. Local crews will join the Wicked crew in unloading all of those trucks and the Aronoff Center’s stage will turn into the Land of Oz in just a few days.

It’s a whirlwind of activity and it’s really something to see!

Would you like to get to see what goes on “behind the scenes” of the Load In for Wicked?

We have the chance to take two of you with us to see the Load In as it occurs!

Broadway in Cincinnati (our sponsor) is giving us the chance to bring two extra people along to see part of the “The Load In” on Tuesday, September 12. That morning, three of us (me and two of you) will get to see behind the scenes of Wicked!

  1. My favorite show is Hamilton— with a close second being Avenue Q for its uniqueness and Rent!

    As a teacher, this would be an amazing opportunity!!!

  2. Wicked is my favorite! I’ve seen it in 6 different cities and each time I get tears in my eyes. Great music, great storyline and costumes.

  3. There are lots! I really love West side story, wicked and the book of Mormon, hard to pick a favorite!! My wife is in love with Wicked and we’re moving to the Cincinnati area this month!!

  4. My favorites are tied between Lion King and Wicked. I’ve seen them both on Broadway and of all the shows I’ve seen they’re my favorites.

  5. Hi Bridgett!

    So many broadway shows I have loved but Wicked is one show I especially have loved! II’ve seen it 3 times so far!!!

    I’d LOVE to join you for Wicked’s “The Load In!” on Tuesday, September 12th!! It would be so FUN and how EXCITING to spend the morning at the Aronoff with you!!
