MEMPHIS, Tenn (localmemphis.com) - A day-of-performance lottery for a limited number of seats will be held for WICKED, which is returning to the Orpheum Theatre with performances from March 7-25.
2 1/2 hours prior to each performance, people who show up at the Orpheum Theatre box office will have their names placed in a lottery drum; 30 minutes later, names will be drawn for a limited number of orchestra seats at $25 each, cash only. This lottery is available only in-person at the box office, with a limit of two tickets per person.
Lottery participants must have a valid photo ID when submitting their entry form and, if chosen, when purchasing tickets.
The surprising tale of an unlikely friendship between two women in the Land of Oz, WICKED tells the untold story of the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good, long before Dorothy drops in. Elphaba, born with emerald-green skin, is smart, fiery and misunderstood. Glinda is beautiful, ambitious and very popular. The remarkable odyssey of how these unexpected friends changed each other’s lives for good has made WICKED one of the world’s most popular musicals.
Tickets for WICKED are on sale now and available for purchase online at the official Orpheum Theatre website, www.orpheum-memphis.com, the Orpheum Box Office (901.525.3000), and Ticketmaster.
