Beverly Ward has been performing since she was a child. She fell in love with musicals while studying at San Diego’s Junior Theatre. By the time she was eighteen she was touring with Annie Miller and Mickey Rooney in Sugar Babies and hasn’t stopped working since. One reviewer said of her singing “She has a set of pipes an organ would envy”. Much of her professional career has been spent (happily) playing opposite her husband, actor/director/writer Kirby Ward. Together they’ve toured the world and have been fortunate enough to perform for royalty and heads of state as a team. At the Hollywood Bowl (in front of 18,000 people) their rendition of “I’ve Got A Crush On You” stopped the show cold. On Broadway Beverly covered and went on for Louise and the Queen in EPIC PROPORTIONS. Her National tour credits include playing the wisecracking Ellie May Chipley in Hal Prince’s SHOWBOAT and the tough as nails Polly Baker in CRAZY FOR YOU (a portrayal that netted her a Helen Hayes nomination for best actress in a musical while at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC). Regional audiences nationwide have seen her perform countless roles. She’s a composer and is working on an album of original folk/rock/jazz music. She’s also written the scores for two stage musicals and has begun work on a third.
