The Island Trees High School Chorus, along with choral director Susan Oliveto, attended the Broadway musical Wicked at the Gershwin Theatre in New York City.
Wicked is an immensely popular musical which originated in a novel by Gregory Maguire which shows a very different take on The Wizard of Oz.
The novel was adapted into a musical which features the music of legendary composer Stephen Schwartz.
This performance was especially exciting because it featured American Idol star Justin Guarini, playing the role of Fiyero.
In class the following day, the students shared their thoughts on what they learned from the performers in Wicked, and how they could use what they learned to improve upon their performances in the future.
