The cast of the Broadway production of Wicked acted out real-life scenes in its rehearsal room on Wednesday as part of its first ever anti-bullying workshop.
The captive audience: students from upstate New York and Minnesota.
“Trust me we’re all green. We all have issues. We all have challenges,” said “Wicked” ensemble actor Anthony Galde.
“Wicked” agreed to work with Bullybust and allowed the group to use its message in the classroom and they launched a nationwide essay contest last fall.
The winner of the contest, 15-year-old Ammie Jergenson of Minnesota, was flown to New York on Wednesday to pick up her grand prize: a seat at the anti-bullying workshop, backstage tour and tickets to the evening performance.
