Shirley Jones

Discovered by musical legends Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II, Shirley Jones was signed to her first Broadway contract when she was just 18 years old. She joined the chorus of South Pacific, but it wasn’t long before she was entertaining movie audiences with her roles in Oklahoma!, Carousel, The Music Man, April Love, and Elmer Gantry -- for which she won an Academy Award (for Best Supporting Actress) for her performance as prostitute Lulu Baines. Shirley appeared on screen with such motion picture heavyweights as Marlon Brando (Bedtime Story), Jimmy Stewart (Two Rode Together), Henry Fonda (The Cheyenne Social Club), Tony Randall (Fluffy), Glenn Ford (The Courtship of Eddie’s Father), Charlton Heston (Gideon), and James Cagney (Never Steal Anything Small). But, she is best known to TV viewers as the mom from The Partridge Family. The role was perfectly suited to showcase her singing and acting talents, and allowed her to spend more time at home with her family: the multi-hyphenate Jack Cassidy, and their three sons, Shaun, Patrick and Ryan. Shirley has appeared in two dozen feature films, countless TV movies, hundreds of TV guest roles, two television series, numerous recordings, and in addition to winning her Oscar, has been nominated for four Emmy Awards, 2 Golden Globe Awards (for The Partridge Family), and is the recipient of countless Personal and Achievement Awards. Shirley performs symphony concerts worldwide, and is currently enjoying a resurgence in her TV career with roles on such series as The Drew Carey Show, Sabrina the Teen-Age Witch and That 70’s Show. Shirley is married to comedian Marty Ingels, and the couple lives in Beverly Hills, CA.
