Kids Commute - Wicked Week!

Original Cast Album, "Wicked" (2003)

Stephen Schwartz's musical takes a deep dive into the Wicked Witch of the West

Inspired by Kids Commuter Beatrix - welcome to "Wicked Week!"

"Wicked" is a 2003 musical by Stephen Schwartz based on Gregory Maguire, which is itself based on "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" by L. Frank Baum.

Hear the story of the friendship between Elphaba (later the Wicked Witch of the West) and her college roommate Galinda (later known as Glinda, the Good Witch of the North) as they unravel mysterious doings in the Land of Oz.

We'll have a "Wicked" quizlet this week, too!

Tune in Monday through Friday at 7:40 a.m., 3:20 p.m. or listen any time at the link.

Kids Commute - no kid, or commute - or broom, or bubble! - required.
