Podschun made her Broadway debut when she was all of 12 years old. As a member of the Von Trapp family in the 1998 revival of “The Sound of Music,” the formidably talented former student at the Miller Marley School of Dance and Voice had made a crucial first step in a musical-theater career.

Podschun graduated from Blue Valley North High School and after only a year of college in Boston she auditioned for the national tour of “Hairspray” and was hired. It was one of those “and I never looked back” moments.

Since then she has racked up some impressive Broadway credits: revivals in 2008 of “Sunday in the Park With George” and “Pal Joey” (directed by Joe Mantello), a 2011 revival of “Anything Goes” and last year, a new original musical, “Chaplin.”

In “Wicked” Podschun plays Glinda, the good witch, opposite Jennifer DiNoia as Elphaba, the misunderstood outsider who becomes the wicked witch. Podschun said the nice thing about this tour, in which she was again directed by Mantello, is that the actors are not seen as more than interchangeable parts.

“Whenever they get a new Glinda or Elphaba, they really want you to bring yourself to the role,” she said. “They don’t want you to do anything you’ve seen before. They want you to bring your own personality. So I get to to use my little weird quirks, my own comedy. I don’t have to be someone else. I get to be the weird self that I am at home with my friends. … Her arc is really fun because she starts so innocent and wide-eyed and then things change and she grows to this lady.” she said.

“Wicked” will be at the Music Hall Kansas City for an extended run of 19 days, which Podschun said will give her a chance to explore what’s new in Kansas City. “This will be the longest I’ve been home since college,” she said.

“My parents come to see me where my show’s at because I get maybe one day off, if that. I’m kind of excited to see the city because I haven’t been back in so long.
