Ken Page (born in January 20, 1954) is an American singer and actor from St. Louis, Missouri, best known as the voice of the evil bag of bugs Oogie Boogie in Tim Burton's "The Nightmare Before Christmas" and the "Kingdom Hearts" series, and for playing Old Deuteronomy in the original Broadway and video cast of "Cats".

Ken Page began his career in the chorus of The Muny outdoor theater in St. Louis. After making his Broadway debut in "The Wiz", Page played Nicely-Nicely Johnson in the all-black revival of "Guys and Dolls" (Theatre World Award). He was then featured in the original cast of the Fats Waller musical revue, "Ain't Misbehavin'" (Drama Desk Award), a role he reprised in the 1982 television broadcast. (Page returned to the show in its 1988 Broadway revival.) In 1982, he played Old Deuteronomy in "Cats", returning to the part in the 1998 video release. He also has the distinction of playing God twice: in "Randy Newman's Faust" at La Jolla Playhouse and Goodman Theatre and in Stephen Schwartz's "Children of Eden" (West End). Page frequently acts in shows at The Muny, with recent appearances including "Jesus Christ Superstar", "Aida", "The Wizard of Oz", "Les Misérables", and My One and Only.

Besides "The Nightmare Before Christmas", Page's major film credits include "All Dogs Go to Heaven" and "Torch Song Trilogy", as well as "Dreamgirls". His TV credits include guest roles on shows such as "Charmed" and "Touched by an Angel", as well as various movies and specials.

In recent years, Page has developed and performed a one-man show, "Page by Page", and directed various regional and touring productions.
