Tim Beam, participated in a lot of shows, often serving as firearms consultant — and acted in local movies. He was also a karaoke fanatic, making the news for record-setting consecutive days of karaoke singing.
He was also that motorcycle guy who was always smoking. I figured one of those habits would do him in, and it seems it was the smoking.
I have fond memories of his onstage antics falling off the operating table in Young Frankenstein and growlingly funny as Blog of Blondania in Thunderhoof… and his ominous portrayal of Walter Cunningham in Riverwalk’s To Kill a Mockingbird.
Check out Tim's local theatre resume at Matt Ottinger’s wonderful database (where you can all search all local shows/names; it’s a treasure!)
