Ohio-born actor and singer Kim Schroeder Long has performed in cabaret rooms and concerts on both coasts of the United States, and gained notice for her work with various Cincinnati theatre companies before relocating to the San Francisco Bay Area five years ago. Since then, she’s been appearing on stages throughout that region and beyond, most recently channeling America’s Girl Singer in Tenderly, The Rosemary Clooney Musical at the Red Barn Theatre in Key West, Florida, reprising a cherished role she’s played in previous productions in California and Kentucky. Her voice is also featured on the studio demo cast recording of Tenderly available to sample at Theatrical Rights Worldwide.
After spending the past summer understudying the role of Fräulein Schneider in San Francisco Playhouse’s much-acclaimed production of Cabaret, she relocated to Southern California, where she is now based in the Los Angeles area. She will next be appearing as a guest vocalist with Palm Springs’ Desert Winds Freedom Band in their 2019 fall concert, All Gershwin, then, next spring, she’s thrilled to be bringing yet another legendary female entertainer to life when she returns to Covington, Kentucky for a limited engagement as Judy Garland in End of the Rainbow at The Carnegie Theatre.
A storyteller through and through, Kim is also an accomplished photographer who achieved international recognition for her award-winning lifestyle and wedding photojournalism, and whose work was featured in numerous publications over the years. Together with her husband Nathan, she is the proud parent of two wonderful children, Simone and Leo.
