As Wagga residents are in the middle of auditions for the community production of Wicked, Griffith is already being treated to a local version of the show.

“Oztacular”: The word that describes the reaction to the first showing of the Wicked production.

Theatre manager Raina Savage welcomed students from MIA schools to the show’s matinee, to first experience the visual, audio and emotional display.

“This is truly an extravagant, once in a lifetime experience for people in the Western Riverina.”

Griffith arts expert and social commentator Neville Dwyer described the show as “wickedly good”, and said it “rivals big city productions”.

He wasn’t the only onlooker impressed with the“ozmapolitan” performance, with students from Coleambaly Central School also giving rave reviews.

“We really enjoyed the show today and highly encouraged people to go,” Makelie Crowe said.

“Overall it was a great performance and it was absolutely amazing, come and check it out, it’s worth it”.

If you want this experience, tickets are $45 adult, concession $40, so contact Box Office on 6962 8444, drop in at 1 Neville Place, Griffith or visit www.griffithregionaltheatre.com.au.

Auditions were held in Wagga this week with the production to debut later in the year.
