February 2016 – Coming in the 2015-2016 Broadway Season
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 makes for “the most complete – and completely satisfying – musical in a long time” (USA Today).
On Broadway and around the world, WICKED has worked its magic on critics and audiences alike. Winner of over 50 major awards, including a Grammy and three Tony® Awards, WICKED is “Broadway’s biggest blockbuster” (The New York Times).
The “Broadway Benefits Our Community” outreach, which began during the 2009-2010 season, has thus far contributed more than $40,000 to organizations such as the CoxHealth Foundation Breast Care Fund and the Dee Ann White Women's and Children's Hospital, Care to Learn, Ozarks Food Harvest, the American Red Cross, Big Brothers/Big Sisters of the Ozarks, Isabel’s House, Ronald McDonald House and Habitat for Humanity. The donations come from a designated portion of Presale ticket revenue – a win-win situation which not only benefits the local charities, but also gives patrons an opportunity to purchase advance tickets, increasing early ticket sales for the shows.
This project also offers the Broadway touring companies an opportunity to give back to the community that welcomes and supports their performances. We plan to continue these efforts whenever possible for future productions. Keep watching our website, tune in to Broadway season media underwriter KTXR-The Gentle Giant, and look in the Springfield News-Leader for information about upcoming Broadway Presale offers and the charities they benefit.
Deb Gallion, Hammons Hall Director of Marketing and Promotions, presents a donation, representing ticket sales from last season's WHITE CHRISTMAS presale, to Morey Mechlin, Executive Director of Care to Learn.
