Here is a brief list of characters from the musical.
Elphaba - The silent but intelligent green girl who is destined to become the infamous Wicked
Witch of the West. She may be shy at times, but she knows in her heart that she is destined to do great things...not
exactly good, but great.
Galinda, (later Glinda) - The popular girl in pink. Elphie and her don't get along
too well at first, but their friendship will prove to be the best thing in their lives one day.
Fiyero - A lazy, thoughtless guy who befriends Elphaba, something that will change his way
of life and thinking.
Nessarose - Elphie's sister, the Wicked Witch of the East. Nessa is disabled from birth
and needs a wheelchair to get around. Elphie takes care of her a lot in school and in life.
Boq - A Munchin-lander who has a crush on Glinda, but later serves Nessarose.
Madame Morrible - Headmistress of Shiz University who isn't as nice as she appears.
The Wonderful Wizard of Oz - The character we know from the original story. A man
who was blown away from the "real world" into Oz in a balloon; he harbors a secret that will ruin him if it ever got out.
