Disney's Beauty and the Beast - November 13, 2019 through January 19, 2020

November 13, 2019

In the fall of 2019 and the winter of 2020, Tim had the opportunity to work again with the beautiful story of Disney's Beauty and the Beast, this time with the Paramount Theatre in Aurora, Illinois! He performed the show with a delightful cast under the direction of Amber Mak, the choreographic team of Mak and Todd Rhoades, and again under the music direction of Kory Danielson, as a member of the ensemble and as the Gaston understudy. Throughout the show's three month production life, he loved working with his cast members and the creative team on this truly magical production. He hopes to work with them all again so soon!

The Wizard of Oz - July 6 through August 25, 2019

July 06, 2019

This past summer, Tim had a phenomenal time as a part of Chicago Shakespeare Theater's production of The Wizard of Oz in the ensemble and as the understudy to Uncle Henry & The Guard! Throughout the summer, he was able to dance his time away in Oz to the choreography of Kenny Ingram and create this land of Oz under the direction of Brian Hill and music direction of Kory Danielson. It was a beautiful challenge that he was humbled to have been a part of and with a cast that sparkled at every turn. Tim already misses the show so very much and looks forward to the possibility of working again with Shakes and with all of the talented and dedicated humans who made the show come to life!

From all the magic and illusions to the wonderfully interpreted Fosse choreography, he had a blast learning it all--and doing it all to Schwartz' beautiful music was such a wonderful experience!

Disney's Beauty and the Beast - November 9, 2018 through January 27, 2019

January 27, 2019

In late January, Tim closed Beauty and the Beast with Drury Lane Theatre in Oakbrook Terrace where he was a member of the ensemble as well as the Beast understudy. In the last few weeks of the contract, he also took over as the Gaston understudy! The process was so incredible and he feels unbelievably fortunate to have gotten the chance to work with such an beautiful cast of humans. He loved the take that they put on the Disney classic and had the best of times performing every night as a Dish, a Villager, and a Statue in addition to the times he went on for the Beast. Tim loved every moment with this theatre, this show, and his fellow performers, and he can't wait to work with them all again!

He feels so blessed to have had such an amazing opportunity!

Shenandoah Summer Music Theatre - June through August, 2018

August 01, 2018

In the summer of 2018, Tim had the privilege of working with Shenandoah Summer Music Theatre in Winchester, Virginia. He felt so blessed to be able to return to the beautiful state of Virginia and live in the gorgeous Shenandoah Valley, working with the incredibly talented cast, crews, and creative teams of three amazing productions.

 

Tim had the incredible opportunity to work on all three productions as a part of SSMT's 2018 season. He portrayed Riff in West Side Story as well as Specs and Spot Conlon in Newsies and was a part of the ensemble of Mamma Mia! He is so grateful to have worked extensively with the talents of every creative team despite such short rehearsal periods and would not have had it any other way.

With another summer in Virginia in the books, and this time working again in the mountains, Tim is extremely thankful to have had this experience with SSMT; it has been a journey he'll never forget!

South Pacific - November 14-19, 2017

He was thrilled to work again with director Scott Susong, music director Saundra DeAthos-Meers, and choreographer Sheri Marley. The show holds a special place in his heart for the many ways love rises above in the plot. He was moved in his studies of the early 1940s from a variety of worldly viewpoints and he is so thankful he could work with a cast who was dedicated in every way to the art.

The Prizery - May through July, 2017

July 17, 2017

In the summer of 2017, Timothy was able to move to southern Virginia to work with The Prizery for their summer season. From passing through the mountains on his way east to the incredible amounts of gorgeous green landscapes and the wonderful town of South Boston, he is incredibly thankful for the amazing opportunity.

Timothy took part in all three productions that The Prizery produced over the course of seven and a half weeks. First, he played Rapunzel's Prince in Into The Woods, followed by a cabaret of Fourth of July tunes and Broadway favorites as a soloist and ensemble member in Red, White, and Broadway. He closed out the season as Lurch, also functioning as dance captain, in The Addams Family. Everyone in the cast, crew, and on the production team was beyond dedicated to the art and he had a blast getting to know them over the course of the nearly two months they were together!

Having spent another summer creating art with such phenomenal people, Timothy holds the experience close to his heart. He cannot wait to see all of the wonderfully talented humans he met in the theatre world again someday!

Runaways - April 28 & 29, 2017

April 29, 2017

This past April, Timothy was stoked to portray Manny as well as other various roles in Elizabeth Swados's 1970s musical Runaways in the E. Melba Johnson Kirkpatrick Laboratory Theatre at Illinois Wesleyan University under the direction of Scott Susong. Having never really studied the 70s era, he had the opportunity to throw himself into the character with a plethora of new ideas and information. The musical was also his second show in heels; he's still amazed how people manage to wear such an uncomfortable contraption on a daily basis. He was thrilled with the run of the production and also to close out his junior year with so many wonderful people!

Southeastern Theatre Conference - March 2-4, 2017

March 04, 2017

Timothy was exuberant to return to audition at the Southeastern Theatre Conference in early March!

The Crucible - February 21-26, 2017

February 26, 2017

This February, Timothy was excited to play Judge Hathorne in Illinois Wesleyan University's production of The Crucible with a dedicated and passionate cast. He worked for the first time under the direction of Thomas Quinn and thoroughly enjoyed bringing Arthur Miller's renowned theatrical work to life. From the first read-through in early January to the last time he watched Proctor rip his confession in two, Timothy would dive in again in a heartbeat!

The Boys from Syracuse - November 15-20, 2016

November 20, 2016

Last November, Timothy had the pleasure of appearing as Antipholus of Ephesus in Illinois Wesleyan University's production of The Boys from Syracuse. He had the opportunity to work again with director Scott Susong, choreographer Jean Kerr, and music director Saundra DeAthos-Meers. It was a phenomenal experience to step into the shoes of citizens of Ephesus and to the music of Rodgers & Hart, no less! He also found a great deal of enjoyment out of synchronization work with his twin, Antipholus of Syracuse, Conor Finnerty-Esmonde. The dramatically comedic musical was a welcomed challenge and the wonderful cast and artistic directorial and choreographic work came together to make the experience wonderful!

Bigfork Summer Playhouse - May through August, 2016

August 28, 2016

In the summer of 2016, Timothy had the pleasure of working with an extremely talented repertory company in the Rockies at a theatre called Bigfork Summer Playhouse. Having never been near mountains let alone living in them, he found some of the Earth's most natural and noble inspiration while creating art in western Montana!

Working in a cycling repertory summer season, Timothy played Danny Zuko in Grease, The Wolf and The King in Shrek the Musical, the Shoeshine Man and Ensemble in Young Frankenstein, and was a part of the Tap Ensemble in 42nd Street. He was humbled to work with an abundance of dedicated actors, technicians, and musicians and he even had the opportunity to create Grease and 42nd Street under the direction of Illinois Wesleyan University alumni Janie Wallace-Slavens and Matt Wolfe, respectively!

Timothy feels unbelievably blessed to have lived 3,000 feet closer to the sky and with people who, despite their proximity to the stars, manage to keep and treasure their deepest most human roots. He frequently finds himself missing his mountain home!

Fame - April 12-17, 2016

April 17, 2016

At the end of his sophomore year at Illinois Wesleyan University, Timothy played Mr. Scheinkopf as well as an Ensemble Dancer in Fame, directed by Jean Kerr. The "fame high school" in New York had always piqued his interest and he craved the opportunity to create this high school on the IWU stage. Though he'd played two roles in a production prior, there was something particularly exciting about being both a teacher and a student--he'd do it again in a heartbeat!

Giant - November 17-22, 2015

November 22, 2015

In November of his sophomore year, Timothy appeared in his first production at Illinois Wesleyan University: the Midwest and College/Conservatory premiere of the musical Giant based off of the book by Edna Ferber. He played Lord Karfrey, the Senator, and other various roles under the direction of Scott Susong. He was thrilled to rehearse and perform with such a talented and dedicated cast, to be working on a gorgeous musical, and to prepare his first dialect work (British RP for Lord Karfrey). Timothy finds himself rather frequently repeating the phrase "What's gone is gone, what's dead is dead, look ahead" from the song "Look Back / Look Ahead" to the annoyance of most people around him simply because it applies to so many situations in life. Alas, the musical is one of his favorites and he feels blessed to have had the opportunity to perform in it so early on in the piece's life.
