Wicked is playing right now at Shea's Performing Arts Center, and while one witch defies gravity on her broom, the other travels by bubble.  The actress who plays Glinda the Good Witch was kind enough to give 7 Eyewitness News Anchor Katie Morse a ride.

Ginna Claire Mason plays Glinda in this production, which is a role she has some experience with.

"I started as the standby in New York in the Broadway production, and I did that for about 16 months, and I just joined the touring cast about two months ago," she said.

Mason says the role is a dream come true, and one of her favorite parts is the top of the show, when she floats to the stage in her bubble.

"This is the grand entrance for sure.  Before the show starts the curtain is down and I get inside, go 34 feet in the air.  You wait for the overture to finish, and as the show begins you get to come down, and the bubble machines around it start," she said.

Wicked is at Shea's through June 4th.
