Tonight, October 29, the National Touring Company of WICKED will host The Songs We Sing...For Good, an evening of cabaret solo performances and duets. Held at The Neptune Theatre, 1303 Northeast 45th Street, Seattle, WA. The event will feature cast and crew members of the company performing an evening of music and dance. The net proceeds of this event will benefit Washington Marriage Equality.
Produced by company members, the evening is an opportunity for them to step out of their roles in the musical in music, dance and comedy; and will feature principal company members, as well as members of the ensemble and the touring staff. In addition, there will be a silent auction of items including Wicked memorabilia, and a live auction of several opportunities to join the company backstage at the Paramount Theatre during their run, including a chance to bid on a walk-on role to be in Wicked. The musical is now playing at the Paramount Theatre through November 17. Tickets are available through STG outlets, online at www.stgpresents.org, or by phone at 877-784-4849.

General Admission is $45. A limited number of VIP tickets, which include priority seating and a 6-6:30pm pre-show reception hosted by members of the Wicked company are available for $100. All proceeds benefit Washington Marriage Equality.
While all are welcome the evening is intended for mature audiences, and parental discretion is advised.
The Songs We Sing...For Good is part of an ongoing series of performances by the touring company throughout the country to support charitable causes which advance WICKED's theme of acceptance and illuminate the musical's message that people should not be judged on first impressions. The company believes that in these divisive times we must come together to support those in need throughout the country and around the world.
