We start 2018 at Chicago’s Oriental Theater with WICKED. This Broadway Sensation looks at what happened in The Land of Oz... but from a different angle. Long before Dorothy arrives, there is another young woman, born with emerald green skin; smart, fiery, misunderstood, and possessing an extraordinary talent. When she meets a bubbly blonde who is exceptionally popular, their initial rivalry turns into the unlikeliest of friendships... until the world decides to call one “good” and the other one “wicked.” We’ll first enjoy a picnic lunch at The Community Center.

This is an extremely fun, immersive, and interactive group event where participants enter a themed room and have sixty minutes to work together and discover a way to reach their goal. As a team, the group uses logic and elements within the room to find clues & keys, solve puzzles & riddles, and decipher various cryptic messages. You’ll hold the fate of your ultimate escape in a unique environment. We will enjoy lunch right next door at Fat Duck and then wrap up our afternoon with a sample of dancing with the stars with a personal ballroom dance instructor!
