A limited number of orchestra seats for each Nashville performance of Wicked will be available for $25 each in a day-of-performance lottery, the Tennessee Performing Arts Center announced Wednesday morning.

Wicked will be performing Sept. 2-20 at TPAC’s Andrew Jackson Hall.

Prior to each performance, those interested should arrive at TPAC two-and-a-half hours before show time to have their names placed in the lottery drawing. The sign up will take place in TPAC’s Polk Theater lobby. The winning names will be drawn two hours prior to curtain for a limited number of $25 orchestra seats available for purchase at the Jackson Hall Box Office, cash only.

Wicked, the untold story of the witches of Oz, is a new musical with music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz and book by Winnie Holzman. It is based on the 1995 best-selling novel by Gregory Maguire. The musical is directed by two-time Tony Award winner Joe Mantello and features musical staging by Tony Award winner Wayne Cilento

Long before Dorothy drops in, two other girls meet in the land of Oz. One – born with emerald green skin – is smart, fiery and misunderstood. The other is beautiful, ambitious and very popular. 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.

My wife and I did this in Chicago and were fortunate enough to get 2 really good tickets at the reduced price on a day when the show was sold out.

It is an awesome performance and I recommend it to everyone.

When you are in uncomfortable position and have got no money to get out from that, you will require to take the mortgage loans. Because that would aid you unquestionably. I get secured loan every year and feel fine just because of it.
