About

I’ve sung (and sometimes acted) in theatres, cabarets, arts centres and village halls from my homeland of New Zealand to Sydney, Melbourne, Hawaii and London and around the British Isles. My cabaret projects have covered the Great American Songbook, Stephen Sondheim and a tribute to Tony Bennett and I’ve toured mid-scale venues around the UK and Ireland quite extensively. I’ve taken Waterloo Sunset (formerly titled ‘Scenes From a Well-spent Youth’) to village halls, libraries and arts festivals around the UK and also performed it at the prestigious Pheasantry in Kings Road, London. Musical theatre credits include Prof. Higgins (My Fair Lady, NZ), Magaldi (Evita, NZ and Hawaii), Julian Marsh (42nd Street, NZ), Potiphar/Jacob (Joseph’s Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat, UK). Tim’s London stage debut was as Sydney Carton (lead) in the new musical A Tale of Two Cities, dir. Paul Nicholas. The UK’s Stage newspaper kindly rated me “spot on” as the world-weary, alcoholic lawyer.
