Wicked comes to Houston

There are still tickets available for the show, and two and a half hours before every show, there is a 20 ticket lottery

HOUSTON - Over 100 Houston area crew members were hired to load Wicked, the show, in to the Houston Hobby Center.

It takes 13 full size semi trucks to haul everything from city to city.

David Obrien, the production stage manager, says the real takeaway is the show's important message.

"This story is very pertinent nowadays. It's about acceptance, friendship. It's a story of bullying, which has obviously come to light, it is not something new," said Obrien.

There are still tickets available for the show, and two and a half hours before every show, there is a 20 ticket lottery.
