Biography

Jennifer Gregson was born and raised in St. Louis, MO.  The youngest of four children, all of whom were involved with some sort of musical instrument, insured that Jennifer grew up with all genres and varieties of music.  Jennifer’s instrument was her voice and she gravitated towards musicals – mostly Annie and Wizard of Oz, which she watched constantly much to the chagrin of her older siblings.

 
She started singing with the St. Louis Children’s Choir around age 13 and attended Southwest Missouri State University (now just Missouri State University) in Springfield, MO where she earned her BFA in Theatre Performance.   Her favorite roles were Sister in Damn Yankees and Ginny in For Whom the Southern Belle Tolls.  After college she spent two years immersed in community theatre in St. Louis, where she played the roles of Gooch in Mame and Sarah in Company.

 
In August of 2001, she decided to take the plunge and move to New York City, where she’s been cast as the Evil Queen in Beneath the Banyan Tree and as Eve in the musical Delilah, based on the biblical story of Samson and Delilah.   Jennifer has always felt a strong passion for singing and at the suggestion of her voice teacher decided to give Cabaret a shot – and that brings us to today where she’s currently taking classes and preparing for her first solo show.
