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
One "Wicked Webb" silent auction prize is
a visit backstage to watch the "greening" of the actress that
plays Elphaba and two tickets to the show.
