As a company member at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, Britney Simpson has performed in several productions, including playing Mme. de la Grand Bouche in “Disney’s Beauty and the Beast” and Glinda in “The Wiz”, among her many accolades. She also played Nina in the Oregon Cabaret Theatre musical “S’wonderful”. Britney joined the Britt Orchestra as part of the Shakespeare and Song evening in 2016 and sang in Sound and Sweet Airs, a Britt/OSF collaboration in 2017. Her gorgeous voice and style will certainly create lasting memories.
