MUSIC


  1. Damn, it’s Great to be an Ewok!
    You might think you know what a day in the life of an Ewok is like, but you don’t. First off, there is a lot more singing!
  2. It’s Mine
    Emperor George (Lucas) Palpatine looks down from his Death Star on his Ewoks…
  3. Look at Me, Look at You
    Logray gives Wicket the 411 on what Kneesaa is going to want in a suitor now that she’s princess, and it’s not great news for Wicket.
  4. A Little Light
    Wicket’s big solo number and torch song that happens to catch him mid-poop while in patrol in the forest. Wicket’s always had a “happy place” and a “little light” inside him, but will it last or is it time to “grow up?”
  5. Princess Sleia
    A strange human suddenly appears on the forest floor. She introduces herself to Wicket, and upon learning he doesn’t speak Galactic Basic takes the opportunity to unburden herself of the frustration and anger she’s been keeping bottled up for so long…
  6. It’s Mine (Reprise)
    Emperor (George) Palpatine reveals to his highest ranking science officer that the Ewoks were made to be toys! Here’s why…
  7. Defying Palpatine
    The end of Act 1. Wicket leads the Ewoks on a mission to rescue Princess Kneesaa. Kneesaa and Logray argue, the Emperor and the Ensign plot a mission forward and great new truths will be revealed…
  8. Ewoks in Stock
    Emperor Palpatine’s show stopping disco promotional ad for his Ewoks. Jump to light speed for Love Day!
  9. Ee Chee Wa Maa!
    Wicket rallies the Ewok tribe and enjoins them to stand up for the right to tell their own story. Oh, and rescue Princess Kneesaa!
  10. A Little Light (Reprise)
    Wicket makes it to Kneesaa who is being held prisoner by someone they both have had a past with.
  11. Fuckin’ Bullshit
    The Ensign has had enough of the sexism and racism that runs through the Empire and makes everyone else so bad at being bad.
  12. It’s Ours (Finale)
    The Finale. The Ewoks have fought for and won the right to tell their own story. Taking back ownership of their mythos and legacy. There’s a temptation to make it “all mine” as it once was, but they decide that it’s not just “mine,” it’s “ours!”

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How are you not being sued right now?
Wicket is no ordinary musical, it’s a parody musical. It came to life not just because someone made a bad pun, but also because we have something important to say.
 
Wicket is not a “comical version of the original.” Wicket is a scathing criticism of the original that, on one hand, calls George Lucas to task for underrepresenting women, having zero minority actors (at least in the first movie), using film to sell toys, and narrative protectionism, and on the other hand satirizes Wicked as “under a stupid spell to retell and then sell a story we already knew…. like, but from a different point of view?” Yes, there are poop jokes, but there is also a subversive, meta-theatrical commentary on the monopolistic control of creative property while tackling the racism, sexism, and sizism that’s so often found in today’s culture.
 
We know, we know, booooring! Still, we know a few cool lawyers (who knew?) who spent a good amount of time putting together a “parody analysis” of the show. It’s a total page turner that you can download a PDF of by clicking here.
How can I see this show? Where is it playing?
Our hope is that one day Wicket will be playing in a theatre near you! Like with any small young, upstart musical with gumption, we’re still going to need a lot of help to get there. We’d NUV to have you along for the ride! Just contact us and let us know how you’d like to be included in the journey.

Is Wicket appropriate for Woklings?
We’d give Wicket a PG-13 rating. Parental guidance strongly suggested for children under the age of 13. There are a few bad words, some sexual innuendo and a good bit of force lightning v. lazer sword stage violence.

What is the running time of the show?
Current the first act is running about 45 minutes and the second act is running about 35 minutes. Throw a 15 minute intermission in between them and your evening will last a bit under 2 hours depending on how many standing ovations occur.

Black Girl Interrupted

The role of the Ensign, I originated in "Wicket: A Parody Musical," is written as a cautionary tale of the effects of casual racism, lack of representation, and mansplaining in the workplace. The thing with incompetence is, when it is no longer being enabled by the undergirding of true skill and capability, it can only do what it does, usher in its own destruction.

Behold! The World's First Ewokese Rhyming Dictionary

The majority of the show is in Galactic Basic (what some of you might call English), but we still want the Ewoks to be able to bust out a few rhymes in their native tongue. I’m hoping the need for an Ewokese rhyming dictionary is making more sense now.

May the Farce Be With You: Musical Parody and Your Star Wars Musical

Early on, Travis and I decided that it would be better, for the most part, to leave the genius of John Williams and Stephen Schwartz alone. Parallel musical parody didn't give us the freedom of expression we needed. So instead, we opted for contrary musical parody, letting the satire and storyline determine the style of each song.
