(WREG-TV) After just celebrating its 10th anniversary, Wicked is back at the Orpheum Theatre in Memphis.

Wicked tells the story of what happened before Dorothy got to Oz.

The show details the friendship between Elphaba and Galinda (her name later changes to Glinda.)

Elphaba is born with emerald-green skin and is an outcast.

Galinda is described as smart, fiery and misunderstood.

Eventually, we learn how they become the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good.

We also learn the origins of the Tin Man, Scarecrow and the cowardly lion.

Hayley Podschun (Glinda) and Jennifer DiNoia (Elphaba) joined us to perform "For Good."

Wicked plays through February 16 at the Orpheum.
