Cast of Broadway’s WICKED Mobilizes Voters Against #Amendment1 #May8 #ProtectNCSunday
On Monday, May 7, members of Broadway’s biggest blockbuster, WICKED will work the phones and mobilize North Carolina voters against Amendment One, a constitutional amendment on the May 8, 2012, North Carolina primary ballot that would ban relationship recognitions and threaten protections for the state’s unmarried couples.
Cast members including Tiffany Haas (“Glinda”) and Michael Rose (ensemble, u/s for “Fiyero”), crew and musicians from the second national tour of WICKED will be on-hand at the Durham Protect All NC Families headquarters (201 West Main St. Suite 200) from 3 to 6 p.m., to man phone banks, talk to volunteers and get the word out against Amendment One.
The company is currently performing at Durham Performing Arts Center (DPAC) and is onstage through May 27. Following each performance of WICKED between May 3 and May 6 cast members, crew and musicians are disseminating information about Amendment One, talking with patrons about the amendment, and encouraging them to vote against on May 8.
