There's No Place Like Salt Lake for WICKED

Tim Kazurinsky, who plays the Wizard in WICKED, visited GTU today to talk to our hosts about the play. Tim Kazurinsky (The Wizard) was a cast member of "Saturday Night Live" 1981-1984 and played Officer Sweetchuck in three Police Academy films. Tim talked about how he enjoys the multicultural atmosphere of Utah. Tim tells how he is able to feed off of the live audience and the other performers on stage for WICKED. Another aspect of theater Tim enjoys is that the play is never the same twice.

Drawing participants must have a valid photo ID when submitting their entry form and, if chosen, when purchasing tickets.
