Artist Bio

Tess Marshall is a New York -based actor, singer and musician. She has performed on stage at many regional houses across the country in a wide variety of roles. This season, she’ll be showing off her best doo wop vocals in Beehive at Milwaukee Repertory Theatre. Last season, she played the cruel and powerful Vivienne in Legally Blonde and brought the house down with her “fierce” belt in “Legally Blonde (Remix)”.

Tess’ recent credits include the inventive site-specific production of Ragtime at Ellis Island, directed by the up-and-coming Sammi Cannold. She’s shown off her legit chops and impeccable vibrato as Elsa in The Sound of Music. Tess showed off her incredible dancing skills, in addition to her chops as a leading lady, as Inga in Young Frankenstein. She has continued to show off her star power (and her versatile operatic voice) as the Lady of the Lake in Spamalot, and the sexy but stern Morticia in Addams Family. But what Tess is most known for is her incredible pop-rock vocals. She showed them off as the angsty but driven Heather in American Idiot, the groundbreaking Green Day musical. Although she is known for her stellar voice in musical theatre, she’s no stranger to straight plays and the silver screen. Tess has kept audiences laughing as Belinda/Flavia in the slapstick comedy Noises Off. She made her film debut as the lead in the short film Bored. Tess recently made her network tv debut on Ordinary Joe, as the recurring role of Dionne.

Tess is the front- woman of Clyde Frog, the classic rock band of which she has been part of for the past ten years. She graduated from the Shenandoah Conservatory of Music.
