Wicket, A Star Wars Parody Musical
by Performing Arts San Antonio (PASA)
Mar. 15 - Mar. 31
Wicket: A Parody Musical is a new “wok” musical that delights nerds and surprises casual fans of the galaxy far, far away. It’s a classic underdog comedy, but it’s also a pointed parody that calls George Lucas to task for his sins, and in it’s galactic workshop premiere, it charmed sold-out crowds night, after night, after night.
The premise is familiar—just as Wicked tells the untold stories of the witches of Oz, Wicket tells the untold stories of the ewoks of Endor from the 1983 film Return of the Jedi. We all thought they were a random race of alien teddy bears that just happened to live in the tree next door to the sequel Death Star. Turns out they are actually the master plan of the evil director of the galaxy. (Yes, of course we mean the Emperor… George Lucas.)
Wicket watches the girl of his dreams, Princess Kneesaa, climbing out of his league and into the arms of beloved medicine man Logray. Then, surprisingly, a second Princess rolls into his life. You might know her as Princess Leia. We soon learn that after a lifetime of tragedy and impossible expectations, Princess Leia has developed a secret shadow-personality: heavy metal diva Princess SLEIA!
