Witches may be creatures of the night, but fans lined up early in the pre-dawn morning for tickets to the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical "Wicked."

"In the first hour we probably sold about 7,000 tickets," said Elisabeth Nebeker, marketing director for MagicSpace Entertainment, the Utah-based presenters bringing "Wicked" to the Capitol Theatre July 18-August 26.

"With season ticket holders and pre-sales we already had about 60 percent of tickets sold, with 12,000 tickets available today."

Which means tickets are going wicked fast.

The first time the Broadway show stopped by Salt Lake City for its national tour it sold out all three weeks. MagicSpace Entertainment was able to book a six-week run for its return engagement.

The musical tells a kind of backstory behind "The Wizard of Oz," charting the rivalry of the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good Witch.
