Jonathan Rayson

Jonathan Rayson was born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska, and got a very early start in the entertainment industry making singing appearances with his father's cover band when he was only seven years old. Throughout Jonathan's school years, his parents and various supportive teachers encouraged him to develop his gift for performance in numerous plays and competitions. During his junior year at Central High School, he landed his first non-school theater role at the nationally-known Omaha Community Playhouse and after graduation became a professional actor with the Upstairs Dinner Theater in Omaha. After three seasons with the Upstairs, Jonathan had his first touring experience in a production of Nebraska Theatre Caravan's long-standing holiday tradition A Christmas Carol.

After three-time Tony Award nominated Frog and Toad's surprisingly brief run, Jonathan landed his second Broadway role as the understudy for Seymour Krelbourn and Orin the sadistic dentist in the first-ever Broadway production of Little Shop of Horrors. He went on several times in his dream role of Seymour, and when the show closed in August of 2004 and plans were being made for a national tour, Jonathan was cast in the leading role and toured for most of 2005.

Besides more Broadway, Jonathan has many other aspirations including film and television. He has also recorded his first solo CD, entitled Shiny and New, comprised of cover songs from the mid-1970's, which will release on April 11, 2006. Because he gravitates primarily to lyrically-driven music, Jonathan has chosen songs by over a dozen famous songwriters like James Taylor, Carole King, Joni Mitchell, Billy Joel, John Denver and more.
