DESCRIPTION: Fresh, poignant, and remarkably personal, TENDERLY: THE ROSEMARY CLOONEY MUSICAL explores the highs and lows lived by legendary singer, Rosemary Clooney. In a story that begins just 60 miles from The Carnegie in Maysville, KY, the show follows Rosemary’s career successes, personal struggles, and her triumphant reinvention as a jazz singer.
Featuring her greatest songs, including “Come On-A My House,” “Tenderly,” and “Hey there (you with the stars in your eyes),” TENDERLY stunningly portrays the making of an American icon.

Kim Schoeder Long: Born and raised in rural Ohio, Kim obtained her theatre degree from Bowling Green State University, where she was a performance scholar, and got her stage legs in Cincinnati, gaining notice for her work with various theatre companies there, such as ArtReach, Cincinnati Music Theatre, Cincinnati Shakespeare Company, and Cincinnati Landmark Productions.
In 2014, she relocated to California and has been performing throughout the Bay Area, featuring in John Bisceglie’s SONDHEIM IN CONCERT and LADY SINCE THE BLUES at Marine’s Memorial Theatre, cycling through all the roles in the zany, audience-cast comedy EAT THE RUNT at Altatena Playhouse, lending her voice to Chanticleer’s TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE, antagonizing the Bennet sisters in IAM Theatre’s national premiere of PRIDE AND PREJUDICE THE MUSICAL at San Farncisco’s Fort Mason Center, and starring in Altarena Playhouse’s much-acclaimed 2017 season opener TENDERLY: THE ROSEMARY CLOONEY MUSICAL. She’s performed in cabaret rooms in New York City, San Francisco, and San Jose, most recently debuting a new solo show, PARDON MY FRENCH at Society Cabaret in San Francisco. This summer, she looks forward to stepping into the shoes of the legendary Bette Davis in Altarena Playhouse’s world premiere of the brand new musical, CASTLE HAPPY before heading back to the heartland in the fall to reprise the role of Rosemary in TENDERLY at The Carnegie in Covington, KY.
