Ashley Dawn Mortensen The Sacramento actress, Ashley Dawn Mortensen, is the understudy for "Elphaba the Wicked Witch"in the touring production of "Wicked", which is playing at the California Musical Theatre in Sacramento through June 17th. The musical is told from the perspective of the witches of the Land of Oz and Elphaba Thropp, the misunderstood girl with emerald-green skin, and Galinda, later Glinda, the beautiful, ambitious and popular blonde. Wicked tells the story in which these two unlikely friends grow to become the Wicked Witch of the West and the Good Witch of the North while struggling through opposing personalities and viewpoints, rivalry over the same love-interest, reactions to the Wizard's corrupt government, and, ultimately, Elphaba's public fall from grace.
