Cast from "Wicked" Entertains Patients at American Family Children's Hospital
MADISON - Thanks to a special visit from cast members of the Broadway musical "Wicked," several patients and family members were smiling a little more brightly at American Family Children's Hospital.
Ten cast members from the recently completed run of "Wicked" at Madison's Overture Center performed several songs before a gathering of patients in the hospital lobby. Cast members from the show often stop by children's hospitals or Ronald McDonald Houses in the cities where they tour.
Following the performance, which received resounding applause, several of the cast posed for photos with patients.
