Maren Morris must be wearing her ruby slippers because she is one step closer to the Land of Oz and just received a callback for Wicked!

“I got a callback for Wicked. I am in tears. What the hell,” the Grammy Award winner tweeted alongside a crying face emoji and a green heart, hinting that she may be up for the role of the Wicked Witch of the West.

While her fans replied with well-wishes and support, Morris received a special retweet from Broadway’s original Glinda, Kristin Chenoweth, who added some words of encouragement. “You go baby!! Told ya you could do it!!! Xoxooxo,” Chenoweth wrote.

On her Instagram Stories, Maren continued to share her elation and gratitude. “Y’all, I literally don’t even care — yes I do! — if I go beyond this callback because this is 14-year-old Maren getting to achieve something that was never in reach,” she said. “It just never felt possible. So thank you for being on this journey with me. We’ll see where it goes. I’m just really happy. I love Wicked! I love Elphaba! I love Kristin Chenoweth — thank you Kristin, for inspiring me to buck up and just send a self-tape in. I don’t know what to say.”

In May, Morris tweeted that she was going to send in an audition tape for the Broadway production. When a fan asked if she would be auditioning for Glinda or Elphaba, Morris responded, “I identify highly as an Elphaba but good god her songs are high.”
