Meet Your Student Advisor- Jennifer Johns
Office Hours: Monday through Friday from 12:00PM-7:00PM
Jennifer began as a child performer (so she specifically loves working with young performers!) and has toured with 6 Broadway and National Tours in a variety of capacities including performer, dance captain, company manager, and children’s choir music director (lots of Andrew Lloyd Webber!) as well as here in NYC. Favorite roles include Sandy inGrease, The Narrator in Joseph, Sally in Cabaret, Reno in Anything Goes, Peggy in 42nd Street, Maxene in Sisters of Swing, Polly in Crazy for You, and Olivia in Twelfth Night. She also thoroughly enjoys being a part of the creative process with New Works and originating roles in New York and Regional Theatre. With over 30 years of professional experience, Jennifer has appeared in numerous national commercials, TV shows such as Strangers with Candy, All My Children, One Life to Live, Oz, Saturday Night Live, 3,2,1 Contact, Law and Order, etc., and movies like Garden State, Moulin Rouge, Kate and Leopold, and Hairspray (1988). In between BAA gigs, she has been a contract vocalist with the USO, American Belles, and Victory Belles for the past 9 years, and continues to tour nationally and overseas performing for our troops alongside performers that run the gamut from Mickey Rooney to Tom Hanks. Jennifer maintains a private vocal, acting, and career coaching studio throughout the year and is proud to see so many of her students currently with credits on Broadway, National Tours, Feature Films, Commercials, TV, and Regional Theatre, as well as signed with Top NYC Agents and Managers! Jennifer has been a proud member of SAG, AFTRA, and AEA since 1981. She holds a M.M. in Musical Theatre (Vocal Performance) as well as an Advanced Graduate Certificate in Vocal Pedagogy from New York University. She is currently on adjunct voice faculty at NYU, teaching private voice. Thank you to all my students and teachers for continuing to inspire me every day!
