Ms. Chenoweth an Emmy Award in 2009 for Best Supporting Actress. The show, ultimately canceled shortly after its 2nd season, is still considered by Kristin to be one of her favorite characters to play.

She has also been seen on "The West Wing" (1999), "Ugly Betty" (2006) and has a reoccurring role on Fox's "Glee" (2009) as the recovering alcoholic has-been, but lovable "April Rhodes" .

Broadway musical star and television actress Kristin Chenoweth first wowed the theater world with her 1999 Tony-winning performance in "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown." But it was her scene-stealing run in the musical hit "Wicked" that began her rise to fame. Though film studios squandered the tiny dynamo's boundless talents in broad-based duds like "Bewitched" (2005) and "Deck the Halls" (2006), Chenoweth was eventually recognized by television audiences for her charismatic and compelling performances on "The West Wing" (NBC, 1999-2006) and the quirky hit "Pushing Daisies" (ABC, 2007-09). Leaving no entertainment medium untapped, the blonde, bubbly Chenoweth released several albums of Broadway standards and contemporary Christian music, in addition to her recordings on cast albums and vocal appearances with the Metropolitan and Washington National operas. By the time she put her song-and-dance talents to good use on the hit musical drama, "Glee" (Fox, 2009- ), Chenoweth had established herself as a multifaceted performer worthy of public admiration.

Kristin Chenoweth was born on July 24, 1968. She was adopted at birth and raised in the Tulsa suburb of Broken Arrow, OK where, from an early age, she wowed churchg rs with her unusually developed (and loud) soprano. She was soon receiving singing invitations from other local churches, and at the age of 12, performed "I'm Four Foot Eleven and Going to Heaven" for the entire Southern Baptist Conference. Incidentally, the performer would only reach a maximum height of 4'11".
 
Chenoweth enjoyed doing school plays, but with the accolades her singing was receiving coupled with her love of contemporary Christian, country and opera, she enrolled at Oklahoma City University as a voice major. Her focus was on opera performance, but she also spent considerable time acting, appearing in college productions of classic musical dramas like "Oklahoma." To partially finance her education, she entered local beauty pageants and was named Miss Oklahoma City University and a runner-up for the 1991 title of Miss Oklahoma.

She went on to earn a Masters degree in Opera Performance, after which she auditioned for New York's famed Metropolitan Opera and was awarded the title of Most Promising Up and Coming Singer. The title came with a full scholarship to Philadelphia's Academy of Vocal Arts, but two weeks prior to beginning her studies there in the fall of 1993, she tagged along with a friend who was auditioning for an off-Broadway adaptation of the Marx Brothers musical, "Animal Crackers."
 
The unknown firecracker won over the producers, who offered her a supporting role despite her non-union status and lack of an agent or manager. With two enormous and distinctly different opportunities in front of her, Chenoweth had to make an important decision. Ultimately she knew that arias would not be enough to fulfill her passions for song, dance and comedy, so she accepted the stage role.
