WICKED is about the untold story of the witches of Oz.
The musical is based on the 1995 novel written by Gregory Maguire, WICKED: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West. While many people know the 1939 film, The Wizard of Oz, both stories take place in a world based on L. Frank Baum’s The Wonderful World of Oz, written in 1900.
The University of Missouri system wants to increase tuition next year by 7.5 percent at its Columbia campus and even more at its campuses in St. Louis and Rolla.
A proposal released Tuesday afternoon spells out proposed in-state tuition hikes of 8.2 percent at the University of Missouri-St. Louis and 9 percent at Missouri University of Science and Technology in Rolla. The Kansas City campus would see a 3 percent increase.
Similar increases are being sought for graduate programs and non-resident undergraduates.
