Short & Sweet - WICKED

As Short & Sweet theater critic for the day, Sarah Pouls attended the opening night of Wicked to provide Daily Herald readers with the audience perspective of the show. Pouls, a first year teacher and recent Augustana College graduate, was able to draw upon her background as a theater minor to critique the performance.

Having seen the show in a previous run, Pouls is able to compare this tenth anniversary cast with an earlier cast: “I loved seeing the transition and the growth.”

  • Here is a new interactive theater production we are opening in Chicago that we would love your to blog about:

    Trapped In Room With A Zombie

    You and up to 11 other adventurers will be physically trapped in a room with a Zombie that is chained to a wall! Hidden in the room is a key that will unlock the door to your freedom. To find the key you must locate numerous clues and solve riddles. Every five minutes the hungry zombie’s chain will be released another foot. Within an hour, the Zombie will be able to reach you. You have 60 minutes to the find clues, solve the puzzles, unlock the door and escape the room without getting eaten! Are you smarter than a Zombie? Find out!

    ROOM ESCAPE ADVENTURES brings to life the mental challenges and adventure of online Escape Games, the pressure of Minute To Win It and the sleuthing of Sherlock Holmes to create pulse pounding experiences that will have your mind racing and adrenaline flowing. Bring some friends and prepare to see a side of them you may not have seen before while you laugh, fret and beam with pride as you work together solving riddles and racing against the clock to escape!

    This event is ideal for:
    *A Team Building Function. If you don’t work together, you won’t escape!
    *The Coolest Date Night Ever!
    *An Exciting Family Outing
    *Crazy Fun With Friends!
