On The Road: Ginna Claire Mason

This week's On The Road features one of my magical Wicked family members, Ginna Claire Mason! I first met Ginna Claire back in 2016 when I became a full-time dresser at Wicked, and we bonded immediately. Ginna Claire has been a such an encouragement in my life, and I am so blessed by her friendship! Ginna Claire is a Nashville native, and you might recognize her from the national tours of Newsies, Flashdance, or when she was a member of the Wicked's Broadway company as the Glinda standby. Currently, she is in Wicked's touring company and floating (in a giant bubble obvi) around North America starring as Glinda the Good Witch! I hope you enjoy getting to know my adorable friend a little bit better, and if you are ever lucky enough to meet this little angel in person, please give her a big hug from me!
