Grab your broom, don your ruby red slippers and travel to the wonderful land of Oz – long before Dorothy and her friends burst onto the scene. “Wicked,” the award-winning Broadway musical, is returning to the Hollywood Pantages Theatre for a limited time, and the city of Santa Clarita is offering residents the chance to see it before it flies away.

“Wicked” is the story of two unlikely friends, Elphaba and Glinda, who you may know better as the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good Witch in “The Wizard of Oz.” The play is recommended for children eight years and older, and those under five years of age will not be admitted into the theatre.

The city’s Recreation and Community Services department is planning an excursion to see “Wicked” on Sunday, Jan. 13, 2019, and has a limited number of tickets available to the public. Tickets can be purchased for $114 per person ($125 for non-residents), and include reserved mezzanine seating at the theatre and charter bus transportation to the show.

Participants will depart from The Centre (20880 Centre Pointe Parkway) at 10:30 a.m. on Jan. 13. Upon arrival in Hollywood, participants will have time to have lunch at a restaurant of their choosing before the show begins at 1 p.m. The price of lunch is not included in registration for this excursion.

For more information and to register to see “Wicked” with the city of Santa Clarita, contact Jennifer Lindstrom, recreation coordinator, at (661) 250-3731 or visit santa-clarita.com/Seasons.
