It has been so special to spend time with my friend Amanda this week. She lives all the way over on the other side of Australia but abandoned her family to come to Perth to see us. As part of my birthday celebrations, Amanda and I booked tickets to see Wicked at the Burswood Theatre. Neither of us knew much about the plot before going; we were just happy to be going to a show. And what a show it was! We marvelled at the set, the costumes, the songs, the characters, and the very clever script with The Wizard of Oz's story woven in. We loved it!
