Wicked Goes "Green" to Celebrate "Wicked Day" in Atlanta's Renaissance Park, Sunday, October 26th

The National Touring Company of the Broadway musical WICKED will celebrate WICKED Day - the musical’s fifth anniversary - on Sunday, October 26. WICKED Day is a national initiative with events involving the WICKED Company to lend support to the environment and to help educate others on living a greener lifestyle. WICKED Day takes place in various cities where the musical is currently playing, including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and London.

This year, the National Tour of WICKED currently playing in Atlanta at The Fox Theatre through November 2 has chosen to do something “For Good” for the environment by volunteering their time to help preserve and enhance green space within the city, caring for the trees and plants at Midtown’s Renaissance Park.

“WICKED Day has always been our way of giving back to our fans and the community which has embraced this musical,” explains Producer David Stone. “This year, Atlanta is currently home to the National Tour, and we are proud to continue efforts in bettering the city’s environment and going green,” said Stone.

Wicked tells the story of their remarkable odyssey, how these two unlikely friends grow to become the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good Witch.
