The New York Times claims Wicked to be “The defining musical of the decade.” Wicked reimagines the classic The Wizard of OZ, but puts the light on the untold stories of OZ’s most infamous characters including the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good. Wicked takes you through the witch’s life and her story of how she came to be called so “Wicked.”
Based on the Gospels of Matthew and Luke, and featuring a pop-rock score by Tony nominee Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin), the joyous musical Godspell Jr. comes to Eagle Theatre in Hammonton, courtesy of the young actors in the company's summer intensive program. Godspell Jr. retells the story of Jesus and his disciples through a series of charming, comedic sketches and an eclectic blend of songs ranging in style from pop to vaudeville, like "Day by Day," "Save the People" and "All for the Best." This rousing, family friendly show and its positive message of hope and kindness have resonated with generations of audiences since it opened off-Broadway in 1971.
