Tom’s current news
Currently seeking opportunities in Minnesota theatre and film.
A film I appeared in...As You Like It, recently won the Audience Choice Award for Best Narrative Film at the Soo Film Festival. It was screened on September 15, 2017. Another, Thaw Of The Dead, won the Audience Choice Award at the Royal Starr Film Festivall on October 13, 2017. See michtix.com/events/f-b06-s07/tickets.
I am currently putting the finishing touches on 2 one act plays for entry into play festivals and am finishing 2 screenplays for short film festivals.
Last summer I appeared at Hope Summer Repertory Theatre and performed the roles of Wilbur in Hairspray and Henry, the Old Actor, in The Fantasticks. Had to take a break for prostrate cancer radiation treatments. I'm now free and clear. A survivor, and have been making the audition rounds.
I have appeared in approximately 90 stage plays, 42 of which were musicals. I lived and performed in Minneapolis for 12 years and have many options in terms of places to stay during rehearsals and performances.
I have also appreared in 15 feature films but the stage is my true love.
