All: Good news!

She`s dead!

The witch of the west is dead!

Someone in the crowd: Look! It`s Glinda!

Glinda :It`s good to see me, isn`t it?

Fanatics: Yes!

Glinda: Fellow Ozians— Let us be glad, let us be grateful, let us rejoicify that goodness could subdue the wicked workings of you-know-who

Someone in the crowd: Glinda! Exactly how dead is she? 

Glinda: According to the Time Dragon Clock, The Melting occurred at the thirteenth hour, the direct result of a bucket of water thrown by a female child. Yes, the Wicked Witch of the West is dead. 


No one mourns the wicked
No one cries they won`t return
No one lays a lily on their grave
The good man scorns the wicked!
Through their lives our children learn
What we miss when we misbehave?

Glinda: And like every family—they had their secrets. 

But from the moment she was born she was? well, different.

Witch`s mother :I see a nose!

Witch`s father: I see a curl!

Witch`s mother: Ohhhhh!

Witch`s father: Sweet Oz!

Witch`s mother: How can it be?

Witch`s father:  What does that mean? Like a froggy, ferny cabbage, the baby is unnaturally-

All: Green!!

Witch`s father: Take it away. Take it away?! 

Glinda: So you see—it couldn`t have been easy! 

Someone in the crowd: Glinda! Is it true—you were her friend?! 

Glinda: Uhm? Well, I? I? Yes. Well, it depends on what you mean by ?friend?. school? and we were both very young? 

Scene 2

Elphaba: What? What are you all looking at? Oh—do I have something in my teeth? Alright, fine—we might as well get this over with: No, I`m not seasick; yes, I`ve always been green; no, I didn`t eat grass as a child?

Witch`s father: Elphaba!

Elphaba: This is my younger sister, Nessarose! As you can see she`s a perfectly normal colour! 

Witch`s father: Elphaba! Stop making a spectacle of yourself. Remember, I`m only sending you to this school for one reason. 
Elphaba: I know: to look after Nessa. 

Witch`s father: My precious little girl: a parting gift.

Nessarose: Father? Jewelled Shoes?! 

Witch`s father: Elphaba, take care of your sister. And try not to talk so much. 

Morrible: Welcome! Welcome, new students! I am Madame Morrible, head mistress here at Shiz University. Oh, you must be the Governor?s daughter! Miss Nessarose, isn`t it? What a tragically beautiful face you have! And who is—

Elphaba: I`m the other daughter, Elphaba. I`m beautifully tragic. 

Morrible: I see, well I`m sure you`re very bright!

Glinda: Bright?! She`s phosphorescent! 

Morrible: Now, regarding room assignments. Attention! Which of you young ladies will volunteer to share with Miss Elphaba? 

Glinda: Madame Morrible—

Morrible: Oh, thank you dear! That is very good of you!

Glinda: What?

Morrible: Yes, now you see Miss Elphaba, you can room with Miss Galinda! To your rooms, young ladies! 

Scene 3

Glinda: Dearest darlingest Momsie and Popsicle?

Elphaba: My dear Father!

Both: There`s been some confusion over rooming here at shiz

Elphaba: But of course, I`ll care for Nessa

Glinda: But of course, I`ll rise above it

Both: For I know that`s how you`d want me to respond

Yes, there`s been some confussion

For you see, my roommate is

Glinda: Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe
Elphaba: Blond.


Glinda: What is this feeling so sudden and new?

Elphaba: I felt the moment I laid eyes on you

Glinda: My pulse is rushing?

Elphaba: My head is reeling?

Glinda: My face is flushing?

Both: What is this feeling? Does it have a name? Yes!


Unadulterated loathing
For your face
Your voice
Your clothing
Let`s just say - I loathe it all!
Every little trait, however small
Makes my very flesh begin to crawl
With simple utter loathing
There`s a strange exhilaration
In such total detestation
It`s so pure! So strong!
Though I do admit it came on fast
Still I do believe that it can laast
And I will be loathing, loathing you my whole life long!

Scene 4

Boq: Miss Galinda! I know I`m just a mere Munchkin. But even a Munchkin has feelings! And I have tried to tell you of mine for you but sometimes it`s like you don`t even know who I am. 

Glinda: That`s not true, Bick. 

Boq: Boq.

Glinda: That class just ended. 

Fiyero: Perfect timing. So what does one do you fun around here?

Glinda: Nothing, until now.


The trouble with school is

They always try to teach the wrong lesson

Believe me, I`ve been kicked out of enough of them to know
they want to become less callow

Less shallow

But I say: Why invite stress in?

Stop studying strife

And learn to live the unexamined life.


Dancing through life
Skimming the surface
Gliding where turf is smooth
Life`s more painless
For the brainless
Why think too hard?
When it`s so soothing
Dancing through life
No need to tough it
When you can slough it off as I do
Nothing matters
But knowing nothing matters
It`s just life
So keep dancing through!

Scene 5

Glinda: Your very first party ever?

Elphaba: Do funerals count? 

Glinda: You very first party! I know, let`s each tell the other something we`ve never told anyone! I`ll go first! Fiyero and I are going to be married!

Elphaba:  He s asked you already?!

Glinda: No, he doesn`t know yet. Now you tell me a secret.

Elphaba: Like what?

Glinda: Like? like why do you sleep with this funny little green bottle underneath your pillow?

Elphaba: Give it back!

Glinda: Tell me!

Elphaba: It was my mother`s! That`s all.

Glinda: That`s not fair, I told you a really good one!

Elphaba: My father hates me. It`s my fault.

Glinda: What? What is?

Elphaba: You see, when our mother was carrying Nessa, my father began to worry that the new baby might come out?

Glinda and Elphaba: green?

Elphaba: He was so worried he made our mother chew milk flowers day and night

Glinda: But that was the milk flower`s fault, not yours. And Elphie—is it alright if I call you Elphie?

Glinda: I`ve decided to make you my new project. 

Elphaba: You really don`t have to do that.

Glinda: I know. That`s what make me so nice! 

Pink goes good with green. Why, Miss Elphaba—look at you. You`re beautiful. 


You`re gonna be popular!
I`ll teach you the proper ploys
When you talk to boys
Little ways to flirt and flounce
I`ll show you what shoes to wear
How to fix your hair
Everything that really counts to be popular!
I`ll help you be popular
You`ll hang with the right cohorts
You`ll be good at sports
Know the slang you`ve got to know
So let`s start
Cause you`ve got an awfully long way to go.

Scene 6

Morrible: Miss Elphaba! There you are! 

Elphaba: Madame Morrible!

Morrible: Oh, I have thrillifying news! I`ve finally heard back from the Wizard, and my dear—he wishes to meet you! 

Elphaba: He asked for me?! Personally?! 

I don`t know what to say! Madame, how can I ever thank you? 

Morrible: Careful my dear, you mustn`t get wet. Wait, I know.

Oh, didn`t I ever mention? Weather is my specialty. Oz speed, my dear.

Now you`re off to meet the wizard!


One short day
In the Emerald city
One short day
Full of so much to do
Every way
That toy look in this city
There`s something exquisite
You`ll want to visit before the day`s through!

Glinda: The night-life! The hustle and bustle! It`s all so? ozmopolitan! Elphie, come on—we`ll be late for Wizomania!

Elphaba: I want to remember this moment. Always. Nobody`s staring. Nobody`s pointing. For the first time, I`m somewhere? where I belong. 

Glinda: You look positively—emerald! 

Scene 7

Oz : I am Oz!

Glinda: Elphie!

Oz : I am Oz, the great and terrible! Who are you and why do you seek me?! 

Glinda:Say something!

Elphaba: I am Elphaba Thropp, Your Terribleness! And this is my best friend—

Oz: Oh, is that you Elphaba? I didn`t realize! : I hope I didn`t startle ya! It`s so hard to make out people`s faces when I`m back there. So, let`s see, which is which? Elphaba! A pleasure, Elphaba! And you must be?

Glinda: Glinda 

Elphaba: I`m so happy to meet you.

Oz: Madame, the book! 

Morrible: Right away, Your Ozness! 

Glinda: Madame Morrible?!

Oz: I believe you`re acquainted with my new press secretary. 

Elphaba: Press secretary?! But what would you like me to do?

Wizard: This is my monkey servant, Chistery

Morrible: So his Ozness was thinking perhaps a levitation spell. 

Glinda: I don`t believe it. Is that? The Grimmerie!? 

Elphaba: Ahben Tahkay?

Merciful Oz! Ahben Tahkay?

Oh, Chistery! What an experience you`re about to have! Ahben Atum Ahben

What is it? Is something wrong?

Morrible: It`s just the transition, dearie! 

Elphaba: Chistery, are you alright?! Why can`t he answer me?! 

Glinda: You did it! You actually did it!

Elphaba: He`s in pain! Quick, tell me how to reverse it!

Morrible: You can`t!

Elphaba: You planned all this?

Morrible: You benefit too! 

Oz: The two of you

It`s time I raised you high


The time had come for you

To have the chance to....

Elphaba: No!!!
