'Wicked' company to hold Witches' Night Off fundraiser | Arts & Culture
ATLANTA -- Joining Hearts, Inc. and members of the national touring company of Wicked will host “Witches’ Night Off,” an evening of song and dance at Georgia Tech's Ferst Center for the Arts on Monday, Mar. 2.
The performance will begin at 7:30 p.m. and also include a very special guest performance by Tony and Grammy winner Jennifer Holliday. The Ferst Center is located at 349 Ferst Drive NW. Net proceeds will benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS (BC/EFA) and Joining Hearts, Inc.
Produced by company members of Wicked, the evening is an opportunity for them to step out of their roles in the musical and kick up their heels performing some of their favorite non-Ozian material.
