Shelby wished to meet the witches in "Wicked"

Shelby wished to meet the cast of "Wicked."

“ Shelby wished to meet the cast from her favorite musical! ”

Just like Dorothy arriving from Kansas, this story begins with a girl who dreamt to experience something magical, captivating and breathtaking. Shelby, a huge Broadway fan, aspiring actress, and a lover of all things green, was granted the wish of her dreams. Her wish was not only a thrilling trip all the way to fabulous New York City to see her favorite musical, Wicked, but it also was a chance for her to escape the physical burden that she carries with her medical condition, cystic fibrosis.

As soon as Shelby arrived in New York, she was given the star treatment. A sleek limo was waiting for her at the airport and her trip kept getting better after that! Shelby saw all the sights of New York, but of course the highlight of her trip was going to see Wicked to meet the cast members! This once in a lifetime opportunity inspired her, as she was able to chat with the stars, including her favorite characters, Elphaba and Glinda. This wish struck a much-needed hope in her heart not only to keep on fighting through her illness, but to believe in the wondrous prospect and goal of living her dream on the stage.

This magical and heart-felt play, a story of love, friendship and the courage to climb any mountain and battle any rivalry helped Shelby gain a new fearless determination to climb her mountains too!
