Other appearances have included playing Judge Omar Gaffney in Harvey, the Radley brothers (both Boo and Arthur) in To Kill a Mockingbird and two different appearances, one whimsical and one not so much, as the Winkie General in The Wizard of Oz. Tim would like to thank first his wife who tolerates the time away from home that rehearsals and performances require and second the cast of Clybourne Place for their professionalism, affirmation, support and selflessness that is for me the heart and soul of the theatre and which is what draws him to the boards, to find the funny and tell the stories. My love to you all.
