Touring cast of "Wicked" to perform cabaret benefit for SAAF
QSanAntonio, March 1, 2014

The national touring company of the musical "Wicked" will perform an evening of song and dance at the Bonham Exchange to benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and the San Antonio AIDS Foundation.

The cabaret entertainment titled "Wicked Webb" is produced by members of the "Wicked" cast and offers them an opportunity to step out of their roles in the musical and showcase their particular singing and dancing talents.

Events like "Wicked Webb" are part of an ongoing series of performances by the Broadway touring company to support charitable causes that advance "Wicked's" theme of acceptance and illuminate the musical’s message that people should not be judged on first impressions.

In its seven years on the road, the cast has raised over $4 million in donations for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and local health service organizations all over the country.

The event also will include live auction featuring opportunities to join the company backstage at the Majestic Theatre.

One opportunity being auctioned off is the “Greening of Elphaba” backstage tour, plus 2 house seats for a performance of WICKED between March 21-23. The other is a ride in Glinda's bubble (the same bubble Kristin Chenoweth used to fly into the 2004 Tony Awards) and a backstage tour chaperoned by a cast member between March 21-23.

Tickets for "Wicked Webb" are a $20. Purchase of event tickets is tax deductible. To buy, call 210-225-4715 or visit TXSAAF.org. Tickets are also available on the evening of Thursday, March 20 at the Bonham Exchange.
