Eden Espinosa, perhaps most famous for taking over as Broadway’s Green Girl in Wicked, goes from not-so-wicked witch to fairy as she guest stars as Orizaba on Disney Channel’s Elena of Avalor.

The actor will be heard on the November 4 episode of the computer-animated television series.

Watch this video sneak peek of Espinosa in the episode:

Composer John Kavanaugh, a good friend of Espinosa, writes the music for the series, including the song “The Gift of Night” that she sings as Orizaba. She describes the song as a hip-hop meets salsa meets showtune number.

Espinosa made her Broadway debut as Maureen Johnson in Rent, before originating the title role in Brooklyn and then joining the company of Wicked.
