a WICKED night at the theatre

Time December 9th, 2013 in College Study Abroad | No Comments by

As is pretty obvious from the title, I recently had the chance to go and see Wicked.  IFSA-Butler organized the night, so that if we wanted to we were able to purchase discounted tickets. I hadn’t seen Wicked since it first came out. I saw it on my 13th birthday, but didn’t recall a lot from the show.

Chelsea purchased tickets, so that herself, her two friends from home and I could all sit together.  It was such a fun night! We started out by introducing her friends to our favorite pub food, steak and ale pie. I’m going to miss it so much when I go home. We also got Christmassy drinks. I ordered a delightfully warm winter cider that was delicious.

 After the pub we walked over to the theatre. IFSA had held a block of seats, so we sat by two Davidson students, who had snuck chocolate into the snow. Sneaky sneaky.  Then, the play started. It was amazing and so fun. All the songs came back to me and Chelsea and I had to refrain ourselves from singing “Popular” when it was performed.

 The night ended with the 4 of us taking a picture in front of the theatre and singing “Popular” on the walk back from mile end station to campus.
