"I got a callback for Wicked," Morris shared via Twitter. "I am in tears. What the hell.”

Earlier this year, the 32-year-old submitted an audition tape for the part after telling KSON’s John and Tammy in the Morning landing a role as Elphaba on Broadway would be a bucket list moment for her.

After sharing with her fans that she submitted an audition tape, Morris received an outpouring of support from followers and fellow stars, including Kristin Chenoweth who played Glinda in the musical. Those fans, including Chenoweth are celebrating the call back right alongside Maren.
