When: Tuesdays-Sundays. Continues through Jan. 25 2009

This smart, tuneful musical, inspired by The Wizard of Oz and based on Gregory Maguire's novel, offers a revisionist account of how a green-skinned teen misfit and her perky blond schoolmate are transformed into the witches of Oz. Writers Stephen Schwartz and Winnie Holtzman emphasize simple but resonant themes: self-esteem, sibling rivalry, tolerance, and the importance of standing up against injustice. (AW) Lottery for $25 front-row tickets takes place two hours before showtime at box office or at Borders, 150 N. State.

Price: $30-$100
