THE Riverland Musical Society is work-
ing hard rehearsing for its production
of Wicked, which opens at the Chaffey

Wicked: The Untold Story of the
Witches of Oz is about unlikely friends,

and Galinda (whose name later chang-
es to Glinda the Good Witch).
The story is about their struggle

corrupt government and, ultimately,
Elphaba’s public fall from grace.

her RMS debut as Elphaba, while
Demi Nicholson, of Loxton, plays

interest, Fiyero, while others in the
cast include Renmark’s Kelsey Gale
(Nessarose), Monash’s Sam Harkins
(Madame Morrible), Loxton’s Cobus
van Niekerk (Boq), and Loxton’s Mark
Skewes (the Wizard).
