GINGER NEWMAN
 

Ginger began her Nashville career almost 30 years ago at the now infamous OPRYLAND, USA, where she performed in almost all of their shows and was featured in the NBC television show OPRYLAND NIGHT OF STARS AND FUTURESTARS (which was the pilot for STAR SEARCH).  Since that time, she has toured the continents on such luxury liners as the QE II, the S/S Rotterdam, and the Seven Seas Mariner (to name a few) as a headliner with her One Woman Show.  She has performed with such artists as Gene Kelly, Ben Vereen, Andrea McArdle, Steve Allen, Cab Calloway and Chita Rivera.
  PBS, IBM,KELLOGGS and AMERICAN EXPRESS have showcased her talent during their National Conventions.  She has been a featured soloist with the Nashville Symphony under the guest batons of Bill Conti and Marvin Hamlisch. She starred in the Nashville Opera's production of CAROUSEL, and she was a Regional Winner in the Metropolitan Opera Auditions, as well as A Tennessee Arts Commission Grant Recipient.

Her extensive work with the Tennessee Repertory Theatre includes: Eva Peron in EVITA, Mabel in PIRATES OF PENZANCE, Nancy in OLIVER!, Pam in BABY, Stepmother in CINDERELLA, as well as originating roles in several new works including the World Premieres of THE PERFECT 36 and Dennis DeYoung's HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME.  Ginger played the leading female character in the first National tour of MY WAY! A TRIBUTE TO FRANK SINATRA and most recently portrayed the title role in the Tennessee Premiere of  SOUVENIR-A FANTASIA ON THE LIFE OF FLORENCE FOSTER JENKINS to rave reviews.

In recent years, she has begun teaching (as a teaching artist with TPAC ED’s ARTSMART), vocal coaching, and musical directing/conducting shows on the stages of Blair’s Ingram Hall, Belmont and Cumberland Universities, and USN--hopefully extending the passions she feels to the next generation.

Her collaboration with long-time friend Russell Davis, has produced countless cabaret shows and a Christmas CD that many listeners claim as their FAVORITE holiday CD!

Of all her accomplishments, her greatest work and joy is her son. Thank you, Daniel!

I perform selections from Musical Theatre, Operetta, Jazz, Gospel, Standards, Classical and Parodies. For a more specific list of song titles, please contact me.
