Julie Crimmins came to Thursday evening's production of the musica "Wicked" wearing a pointed hat and a "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" watch.
"See my watch," she said with a smile and pointing at the watch's face. "The Good Witch and the Bad Witch."
Crimmins has fond memories of the movie. Well, maybe not so fond.
"I remember hiding in the kitchen and standing behind the stove because I was afraid of the Wicked Witch that was green," she recalled.
"I asked my mom to tell me when the Wicked Witch was gone so I could come out."
Crimmins, of South Bend, enjoys making a return trip to Oz to watch the musical "Wicked" with her friends.
"I have two girlfriends (and the) three of us pretend we are (witches)," Crimmins said. "So therefore we are wearing our hats for the 'Wicked' presentation."
Crimmins is one of many people attending the show at the Morris who saw the play in Chicago, and she was excited to see it again.
"I love the way they fly through the audience, and I like the presentation of Oz with just a little twist.
"It's very cute."
Dawn Wilkins attended the show with her daughter Brielle.
Both said they were excited to have a chance to see the musical in South Bend.
"This is a big Broadway show, and this is a good opportunity to see a Broadway show in a small town," Mom said.
Brielle said she was excited to have a chance to see a play that many of her friends have already seen.
"I'm looking forward to seeing wonderful entertainment, and fast moving joyful stuff," Brielle said.
Steve Camilleri is another "Wicked" fan who saw the play in Chicago. His wife, Erin and two children, Isabelle and Michael, would all see the musical for the first time.
Isabelle said that she was excited to see the play because she is a big fan of "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz."
"I love 'The Wizard of Oz' because it starts in black and white and when (Dorothy) lands the land of Oz it becomes all colorful."
Erin Camilleri said the family has been listening to the musical soundtrack since learning that the tour would be coming to South Bend.
