It is that time again! I'm performing in the best Comedy Showcase in town tonight! Actors Comedy Studio. It's Where funny is at. or It is where funny is. or Funny is there. That's better. I don't like ending sentences with at.

Mk. that's that.

Happy way too hot October, all.

*Don't forget about my voiceover page! Listen!

*You can even follow my every move on Twitter (for example: today I had frosted mini wheats for breakfast. riveting)

You could also friend me on facebook, but I post a lot of baby pics. I'd hate for you to end up blocking me. I can't handle that rejection.

**************************************************

Um. Gulp. It's been a really long time, hasn't it? Well, I have a 1 year old to show for it! Proud of that!

Let's see...what's happened since then? More showcases, baby, voice work, baby, teens, baby, baby teens, husband, I mean I gotta live don't I?

And this PSA for the tweenset I shot with Joshua Staman and Epic Level Entertainment. Funny stuff. Don't be offended- all in good fun.

I'm starting to feel like a real human again. Really. I am. I think I might not just be a mom anymore! I'm a whole separate person! (just don't tell baby that)

I'm performing in a play reading of Neil Simon's Rumors on Friday, July 20th at 8pm at Actors Comedy Studio. Come at 7:30pm and mingle- with some free wine! Guaranteed to be funny. Details here.

Let's hope I'm posting more often. Ya know, between naps and stuff.

March 2011

I should be ashamed that this site hasn't been updated since 2010! and October at that! BUT I've been very productive in all aspects of my life, frankly, so I'm cutting myself some slack. Sometimes ya gotta live a little.

So in my personal life there's some GREAT news. I'M PREGNANT! How productive is that!? I'm due the 4th of July and starting to have that cute little buddha belly. The one where I can still walk and talk without huffin and puffin. Apparently it's also the time of my pregnancy when I should be glowing. I'll let you know if that starts to happen. But fear not, this sort of thing is only temporary and I'll be back to my old self in no time (that was really for my own benefit).

As far as the ol' career goes, my Carfax commercials are STILL running! Yahoo! Perhaps you've seen 'em? You can scroll down below for the links. They're fun.

I'm taking comedy at the brand spankin new Actors Comedy Studio with Todd Rohrbacher. Having a blast and performing in a Comedy Showcase this month! Belly or not, ya can't stop altogether! Don't wanna lose any momentum! And who doesn't want to be funny AT LEAST once a week?

My new photos are up, but I suspect even newer ones will be coming soon. I mean, since it does pass in such a fleeting moment (another one for my benefit only, really) I have to capture the belly while it's here and I haven't started to loathe it yet.

May you all enjoy the spring!

I've got two commercials running right now. You can see them below:

Dole

Carfax 2010

(psst. I shot 2 Carfax spots- you can see my Carfax 2009 spot here)

The rest of my site is just about complete! All of my new pictures should be up within a couple of weeks. Change is good!

I'm currently studying at Steppenwolf West with Shannon Cochran and Alexandra Billings. Loving it.

September 2010

As you can see, there are lots of changes happening around here! The hair has been cut, the new pics have been shot and the website is slowly but surely getting changed.

I'll have a new reel up shortly along with all of my commercial spots available for viewing under my reel section.

I'm also "shopping around" for new classes to take to keep these acting muscles in shape!

Exciting times!

Big news!

I am now repped by Abrams Artists Agency for Commercial and VO!

Off to a great start!

 

July 2010

I just took a much needed midsummer vacation to visit family and am back in LA ready to rock n roll!

I'm excited to tell you I have two commercials currently running.

You can find my Dole Salad Blends commercial by clicking here. Just scroll to the bottom of that page and click where it says "See my TV Commercial".

Apparently my latest Carfax ad is running as well but I have yet to see it on TV or on youtube. Stay tuned !

My new headshots will be up on all the sites (and here): Actors Access, LA Casting and IMDB shortly. I'm excited to share them with you!

Happy summer!

June 2010

May was a success! I shot a funny Dole commercial that I can't wait to share with you all.

THEN I CUT MY HAIR. My WHOLE site will be changing soon. I've gotten new shots taken with Kenneth Dolin (awesome, funny) and will be revamping this here site with the new me. Hopefully this new me says- or SHOUTS- "me" a bit more.

My Willy Wonka drama kids were such stars and I'm happy to have wrapped another successful year of after school drama. Not bad for a day job. I'm very thankful.

I'm back at Todd Rohrbacher's on camera comedy class at Scott Sedita Studios and having a blast. Hooray for the return of the sitcom! I'm a firm believer it's presence is on the raise and here to stay!

Please stay tuned for my new headshots/new site! Can't wait to show it all off!

Happy Summer!

May 2010

I ended April well! Carfax asked me back for another spot and I shot it. So much fun- another funny spot coming soon! Big thanks to Go Films! My other one is still running and you can watch it here: Carfax

I also just booked a commercial for Dole and will be shooting that this month. It's gonna be pretty funny, I'm excited to share it with everyone!

I was lucky enough to have a small role in the film Yeardley that has just won Best Feature at The Malibu International Film festival. Very cool news.

Looking forward to what the rest of the May has in store!

April 2010

The great search begins for a theatrical agent. Most of my work this month will be focused around that and trying to get in front of some casting directors who may not be quite as busy now that pilot season is winding down.

BBA, my commercial agents, thankfully continue to get me out so let's keep hoping I continue being busy there, too! Come on big national commercial for 2010 (doesn't hurt to put it out there)!

My screenwriting class is over and now the hard part- turning in my final script.

I'm also working on a web series idea which is starting to come to life (in my head, anyway).

Looks like a busy month ahead! Bring it on!

All the best to you. Thanks for reading!

March 2010

Woa! I missed February! I was so busy it ran right past me.

I shot a commercial for Hoover in February so the year is starting out well!

I'm also taking a screenwriting course which is so much fun. I'm seeing how much being an actor can help when writing dialogue, developing a full character and creating conflicts in scenes. I've done that work!

I'm developing a web series for myself. If they aren't beating down your door yet, create your own work, right? (that phrase always makes me chuckle. can't help but picture it. warm in my bed: suddenly a swarm of agents, managers, directors, CDs...all just knock my door down. egh. how 'bout maybe just call?)

I'm heading in to blocking and scene work with the drama kiddies. I always learn a lot from these little guys. love them.

In other news, I got a puppy. eek! Nothing to do with the biz, but such good news I had to share

Luck of the Irish to you all this month! Thanks for reading!

January 2010

Happy New Year!

I went out with a bang for 2009 with two commercials still running. See my Big Lots commercial. or Carfax that's STILL going strong!

I'm looking forward to bigger and better (and even longer running perhaps?) fun jobs for 2010!

Bring it on!

Let's top last year's 5 commercials- I'm looking to double it!

Caroline

 

October 2009

I just finished shooting a new show called "Pregnant and Injured" that will air on Discovery Health and TLC. Lots of fun. They had to dye my hair to better match the person I was portraying so you'll need to imagine pale me with darker reddish brown hair for the next couple of weeks. It's kind of fun to sport a new 'do but not fun to not be submitted for jobs since I don't match my headshot! Yikes!

My Big Lots commercial starts airing in November. Hopefully I'll get a copy of it soon so I can share it with you!

My Carfax ad is still airing like mad all over the US and apparently Mexico and Canada, too!

2/8 Life enjoyed a good little popular run on Hulu last month. here's a link to my episode: 2/8 Life Season 2 episode 7

All the best-

September 2009

I missed August! My computer wasn't behaving when I tried to update a few times in August and then I took a much needed little trip out of town...so here I am in September filling you in.

I booked another commercial. A Big Lots! Christmas commercial!This one will air beginning in November. I have been so lucky this year with commercials: Big Lots! marks my 5th spot! Gotta love my reps at BBA! THANK YOU! (if you're interested, see below to view some of my other commercials)

Hulu.com has picked up the 2nd season of 2/8 Life- the web series I shot a while ago that spoofs the series Quarterlife. My episode airs the week of September 21st! Don't miss it. My scenes are with the hilarious Bob Wiltfong. I've said it before and I will say it again- this series is so cleverly written and deserves a huge following.


Happy Fall to all!

Happy summer, everyone!

I daresay this Hollywood world seems to be waking up and everyone's getting back to business. Phew. How about some more commercials, too? They're starting to call again! I'm ready to work!

I still have some commercials running through the summer! I've had a great commercial year so far and feel very lucky.

Wanna see 'em? Click on the names below:

CARFAX

June 2009

My Music Man Jr performances were fantastic. Man, those kids make me proud. And I do have to say I'm proud of myself. I learn a lot every year from those amazing little things.

What's ahead for summer? I'm back in the swing after taking that time off for Music Man Jr and am now running around with auditions and callbacks once again. Whee!


While my commercials continue to run (see below) I would welcome another job to boast about so here's to hopin' I update again soon!

All the best!

May 2009

Finished shooting the sci fi short Quantum Age at the end of April! I can't wait to see some shots from this. It's gonna be great.

I am enjoying taking meetings with various industry folk who attended the Cricketfeet Showcase last month. It is nice to have a few choices when looking at more people to help represent me! I feel very lucky.

My commercials just keep running! You really get a sense of how many people watch TV when almost everyone who knows you let's you know they saw your commercial. :) Makes me feel proud, that's for sure. You can see them here (click below):

CARFAX

DEL MONTE

This month the hard work has arrived for my elementary school kids and our production of Music Man Jr. I assistant direct a year long after school program and our show is in two weeks. I usually spend the entire weekend crying over how far the kids have come in a school year (not to mention I'm positively exhausted by then)


A very happy May to you all!

April 2009

UPDATE: Just performed in the Cricketfeet Casting Showcase and it was a great success! We had a fantastic turn out and so so much fun. And now I look forward to calls from all the contacts I made. I am so grateful to Bonnie Gillespie and Chil Kong for making me look so good. :)

other news:

I've shot 4 commercial spots so far this year! 3 of them are running right now! Del Monte Fruit Chillers is running on Nickelodeon and you can see it here.

"SHOW ME THE CARFAX!" Carfax is everywhere (so fun to get calls, e-mails, facebook messages and tweets saying "I saw you!")! BUT no need to sit and watch TV all day to wait for it(you wouldn't need to wait long). You can see it here.

My BonTon ad is running wherever BonTon Dept stores are. My mom called to tell me she saw it- so it's definitely running in the good ol' Midwest now.

I have begun shooting Quantum Age the sci fi short. It's fun and only gonna get better when I start working with Eric Allard and his robot later this month! wooo!

I continue the funny with Todd Rohrbacher every Monday night at Scott Sedita Acting Studios. You can never get enough comedy in your life! :)

Happy Spring everyone!

March 2009

It just keeps getting better!

I booked and shot ANOTHER commercial this month. A funny spot for CARFAX with GoFilm. It was a fun and surprisingly quick day. That makes 4 commercial spots in about 5 weeks. And the auditions keep coming. Thank you thank you. Phew.

My agents are pretty excited about my recent success, too. You can see they are celebrating me on their news page here.

I also booked a sci-fi short film. I'm excited about it. I was asked to audition and then offered the role by Michael Keller who directed me in Crackpot. It's nice to be asked back- and for a different type of character! I take pride not only in being a good actor, but in showing up on time and keeping my responsibilities in order. It pays off when you get asked back. More details to come.

I'm working hard on preparing for my turn in the Cricketfeet Actors Comedy Showcase. I'm lucky to have two great scenes and 3 funny scene partners! It's coming April 22nd and 23rd at the Colony Theatre in Burbank.

Still laughing it up in Todd Rohrbacher's On Camera Comedy class at Scott Sedita Acting Studios, too. I love my Monday nights there! Last week I got the opportunity to read for Emmy Award winniing director Mary Lou Belli. She's been directing sitcoms for ages and it was thrilling to read for her and get great feedback. Quite an honor. It helps me feel confident that I can compete in the big leagues. Woo!


Hope everyone is well!


Best,

Caroline

February 2009

We're only two months in to this year and I'm busy! woo!

I got to start February off with a Del Monte campaign shooting two spots for their product "Fruit Chillers".(there's a link- how fun is that?). This will air on the Nickelodeon network. I'm finally getting those funny, young mom roles that seem to be cropping up everywhere. hallelujah. It pays to be a bit of a funny dork, ma.

I also flew to Chicago to shoot a commercial spot for Bon Ton department stores that will air regionally in all areas of the US where there are Bon Ton stores.

Huge thanks to Ross Lacy Casting for helping me book all three of those spots!

I continue to enjoy my On-Camera Comedy Class at Scott Sedita Studios with Todd Rohrbacher where I am further solidifying my future as the sarcastic young mom (which, I'm sure my real life kids and drama students can attest to!).


I am also happy to announce that I will be performing in Bonnie Gillespie's Cricketfeet Actors Showcase! I'm so excited to have been asked to be a part of it. It's coming April 22nd and 23rd at the Colony Theatre in Burbank! I'll keep you posted!

Here's to much more to come!

All the very best-

January 2009

Happy New Year!

I'm very excited to get the momentum going on what's already shaping up to be a fun, busy year for me.

I start my sitcom course at Scott Sedita Acting Studios this month. I am very much looking forward to stretching my funny.

This month I shot the pilot/trailer for Sleepless on Sunset as well as another funny short bit in an untitled web series for writer/director Matt Vascellaro (who I worked with on 2/8 Life).

I wish the best for you. May this be the best year yet!

September 2008

Ok, so I'm not a kid anymore, but the start of a new school year always makes me feel like I should go back to school and dig into more classes myself! It's that Midwesterner still lurking in me who longs for the leaves to change that always made me feel like something great was going to happen around the corner. It's not like a new year in January where everything seems like a bit of blank slate (don't get me wrong that's exciting, too), but Fall has always been a chance to look back on what you've done so far this year and still make time for things you haven't yet accomplished.

I begin at Scott Sedita Acting Studios with a Comedy Intensive class this month. SO looking forward to it!

I am also the Assistant Director of the drama program at a nearby elementary school again this year. We are doing The Music Man Jr. I always learn so much from these kids- about my own acting abilities, fears, apprehension...about life, really. I'm looking forward to what they can teach me this year- and what more a play like The Music Man can teach me about taking chances as well as believing in yourself and having a little blind faith.

You can see my latest funny little commercial for Teleflora right here.

You can still tune in to view both of the web series I've taken part in: Grande con Carne and 2/8 Life (season 2 still to come!).

Hope this Fall brings on new beginnings and the completetion of previous goals for everyone!

August 2008

My voice over demo is finally starting to pay off. Among other small jobs, I just worked as a voice of a panicky woman in the upcoming film Cornered. I'll keep you posted on release dates.

I will hopefully have some new content to add to my reel and will have that up as soon as I can!

You can still tune in to view both of the web series I've taken part in: Grande con Carne and 2/8 Life (season 2 still to come!).

Happy summer, everyone!

Caroline

 

 

June 2008

The web series Grande con Carne has it's own website now! You can see all of my episodes (6,7,8) in one easy place. They're fun, they're quick. Click here!

The web series 2/8 Life that I'll soon be in can be found on the Independent Comedy Network: icn.tv. It's the 2nd season promo that wil get you excited. It's such a clever show and gathering quite a little following. I had the pleasure of sharing my scenes with the hilarious Bob Wiltfong. 2/8 Life is one of the first series to be airing on hulu.com. The new site from NBC where you can watch episodes of certain TV shows and many films. Very exciting. Season two coming very soon. I'll keep you posted!

Don't forget to listen to my commercial demo here!

Thanks for checking in,

Caroline

 

May 2008

It seems my partnership with BBA is really paying off! I booked my third auditon with them. I just shot a commercial for Teleflora that will begin airing on Mother's Day!

The webseries Grande con Carne is still going strong. Please click here to check out my latest episode.

I'm also very excited to announce the next webseries I have been lucky enough to take part in. This one's called 2/8 Life and it is a parody of the webseries Quarterlife that got it's one shot on TV- the first web show to cross over...and, well, fail. But this show is so good on it's own it doesn't matter if you haven't seen Quarterlife. The show features Bob Wiltfong from The Daily Show and I was happy to share my scenes with him. Very funny! Check out the webseries (you can even just google it- great reviews and a little following!). Season 1 is out now and Season 2 begins soon! The show can be found all over the internet, but began it's run- and remains on icn.tv which is a great website thats sole purpose is to promote web shows.

All the very best for a sunny and bright May-

Caroline

 

April 2008

I'm thrilled to announce my partnership with Bobby Ball Agency. Mike O'Dell, Brando Olech and Brandy Wilkerson from the Commercial Dept will be working with me now! We're off to a great start.

We just shot some more of the webseries Grande con Carne. My episode is up and getting some good laughs on www.funnyordie.com. You can see it by going here.

Some more laughs are on their way soon! I'll keep you posted!

Thanks to the amazing power of the internet- and Voice123- I am the female voice in English of 90.1 FM in Santiago, Chile! Please check out my voiceover site here.

All the best-

March 2008

The webseries I'm in has an official name now! Grande con Carne has now been launched online and is getting some good feedback. Episode 1 and 2 both have spent some quality time in the "Hot Right Now" section of www.funnyordie.com. You can also join the MySpace page for Grande con Carne and keep up with it there...although the video quality isn't as good there. Of course, the series is on YouTube as well! My role begins in episode 5...I'm another one of poor Martin's dates-gone-wrong. It's a fun show, guys! Tune in. We'll be shooting some more episodes this month!

The funny mockumentary feature film I'm in You, Only Better is also in production. This is a movie about life coaches, 5 in particular who are vying for the Emerging Visionary Life Coach award. Very funny. Talented cast. I get to play a workshop leader with an interesting approach to healing from the inside out....ROAR!

The strike is over. TV season begins anew... Here's to new opportunities!

That's what spring is all about, right?

February 2008

My most exciting news of the month is my new Voice Over Demo I just completed with my coach Nancy Wolfson and the launch of my new voice over website! You can click here: carolinetimm.com/voiceover to listen. I'm so proud of it. Calling all jobs! My voice is ready! Many thanks to Jason Sikes at Village Green Studios for his amazing work on the site!

We shoot the web series Humunga Chunga this month. I'm excited to be a part of this funny cast directed by RJ Thomas. It should come to a computer screen near you very soon! I'll be sure to keep you updated.

In class we are working on new characters of our very own in hopes of creating a story that we can turn into a film! It is fun to do such great work in class and know that it can also turn into great WORK outside of class!

I feel fortunate to have had some great auditions in the past month and have met some great people. 2008 has started off well for me - nevermind that strike!

Here's to more work for March!

All the very best-

Caroline

 

January 2008

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I am so happy to say that despite the strike that has taken hold over this town I have managed to stay busy with auditions and jobs!

Early in December I shot a public service announcement on voting for Declare Yourself directed by Max Winkler. I play a sexy 1950's housewife. The PSA's feature Ed Helms from The Office, Superbad's Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Rachel Harris from Reno 911. VERY funny people and very funny spots! I'm excited to have been a part of it! Keep checking declareyourself.com for updates!

I also shot a Mrs. Baird's bread commercial which will air regionally in Texas. The brand is celebrating 100 years in 2008. I play the modern day mom making sandwiches for my kids!

I most recently shot a promo spot for the upcoming show The Secret Lives of Women. This will air weekly on the WE Network. The still spots will soon be out. Keep your eyes peeled. I'm in a big ol' white wedding dress. Can't miss me.

I have begun read-throughs for the hilarious webseries Humunga Chunga. I play - ummm-- an adventurous blind date. Pretty goofy. I'll keep you posted.

My voice over demo is complete and will be posted here and on a separate site very soon.

I also have just gotten some new headshots done and can't wait to share them with you! It's hard to pour over your own face so give me some time!

Waiting, the short film I starred in, is complete and I will have clips from
it up here shortly and hopefully a new reel.

So much to do at the start of a new year!

Much happiness and all the best for a healthy, prosperous 2008.

Caroline

 

November 2007

What a busy couple of months!  Luckily, folks, I've been so busy I simply have not had time to update my site!

I have a new agent. Aur-Aelion Israel at Almond Talent is now on my side in all things "Biz"!

I filmed a short film called Waiting in October where I played a woman in distress as she waits to hear about the fate of her fiance who has been hit by a car. BUT- things are not always as they seem... Stay tuned for a clip!

I also shot a small part in the feature film For All Good Things. I get to play bad cop as the HR person who lets the lead male go for a false sexual harassment complaint. Looks like an interesting film and I will fill you in on details when I get them, too!

I have also just booked a role in a new webseries coming soon directed by RJ Thomas. There is no working title yet, but I will let you know. The humor will be in the vein of Judd Apatow films (The 40 Year Old Virgin, Knocked Up) so watch for more funny from me!

I'll be recording my voice over demo tape with Nancy Wolfson in December. Please look for that at the first of the year!

It is great to be busy (oops, at first, I typed "busty" by accident...that might be great, too, but alas...)!

Stay tuned for more news!

Hoping the holidays bring you much peace,

Caroline

 

October 2007

Fall is in the air! Or at least it is somewhere. Here in LA the only tell-tale sign is all the exciting new shows starting up! And the added excitement of what's gonna flop? What's going in mid-season?

I'm fresh off a "Know Your Type" class with the energetic, kind, thoughtful, informative Mark Atteberry. And now I feel a lot more confident with how to market myself. Here are some ways I can describe myself with the help of my classmates and Mark:

Anybody looking for a caring, convivial, classic All American woman—a la
Elisabeth Shue? How about a witty, laid back, hip, young mom with Patricia Heaton's comedic sensibilities!? Or maybe a feisty, passionate, cheerful,
quirky best friend type a la Jenna Elfman? I might even be able to kick somebody's derriere for you—of course, I'd feel a little guilty about it and probably crack a joke afterwards—AND it would totally be undercover. I've got an ounce of adventure in me, but I'm the one who wears the glasses and the business suit and runs into the phone booth to change and save your child from a burning building. My wardrobe doesn't have any tight fitting leather in it, but- gee—that would be cool. I don't have any street-wise, troubled-past angst. I do, however, HAVE a past, so some innocent baggage is continuously carried with me in my own understated, yet sarcastic, Julia Louis Dreyfus meets a classy Robin Wright Penn sort of way. I'm Laura Linney on a pot of coffee, if you will.

I am also still studying voice over with the great Nancy Wolfson. Fun. My voice range is older than my "face" range so I feel like a new person stepping up to the mic. Yes yes yes, I CAN play the classic 45 yr old Stepford Wife. I CAN play the all-knowing, reassuring, calm, car-pooling, mother-on-the go. Just, maybe, don't look at me yet.

A short film I shot called Etude is being featured in the Cinema City International Film Festival at the end of September! I'm very excited about this! I worked hard to brush up my cello skills (although the final playing is, alas, dubbed). I learned sign language for this role, too. It's a beautiful brief look into a concert cellist's life after an accident which causes her to lose her hearing. Bravo to Oscar Moralde for making a great film.

I continue to work with my coach Caren Adorni in her Stanislavski Master Class. We are now delving into David Rabe's gritty Hurly Burly. I know I speak English, but getting this fast-talking, drug-induced language down is a fun challenge.

Thanks for reading and browsing!

All the best- Caroline

 

August 2007

Summer is just ticking away and I am busy, busy, busy!

Currently, I am working on playing Helen of Troy (as well as ensemble characters) in Goethe's classic tragedy FAUST with The Artists' Collective at Cal State LA. It's a new modern dance- very visual- adaptation with original music. It's been a lot of hard work. We open Thursday July 26th. It is sure to be something you have never experienced in live theatre... You get up out of your seats and follow the devil through courtyards and theatres as he leads Faust on his soul-satisfying adventure.

In July, I also shot a bit part in the AFI short Death In Charge. This will surely be a great little film about a young girl and the (female) grim reaper. I'll keep you posted on this!

MY REEL IS FINALLY UP! Please check it out here! I also have updated some of my photos. Feel free to browse.

Hope everyone is having a great summer!

Hey, everyone!

I'm working hard to put up some terrific new stuff here.

I just had a great photo session and completed my reel so check back in a week or two for the new me!

Meanwhile, fire up the grill, head for the beach, set off a few fireworks (unless that's illegal where you live...then, don't)... you know, have a great summer!

May 2007

I have pictures posted from my fabulous time with Musical Theatre West's The Full Monty. Click here or go to my Pictures section.

I am currently working on getting some new video onto my site as well. I'll have at least one scene from Crackpot and one from Inn Between within a couple of weeks.

I have started my voiceover sessions with the great Nancy Wolfson and things are going well. There is so much to know and fun to really dig in and eat up something new in this business.

I am also working on Chekhov with my coach Caren Adorni. While I'm a bit too young for the role of Irina Arkadina in The Seagull, I have chosen to work on her to develop a likeable "bitch" (for lack of a better word, folks). Women could easily play her from the words- which come off self-centered and arrogant. I think to make her someone the audience can feel for (and laugh with!) she has to be those things on paper as well as be endearing underneath. That is my work this month; seeking my truth in the unfamiliar (a character unlike me) and translating her into the modern American world.

'Tis May, everyone! A reason to celebrate in and of itself. Flowers, BBQs, beach time, weekend trips. I'm looking forward to this month!

All the best-
Caroline

 

April 2007

It's officially spring! Time for new beginnings!

After a great run of The Full Monty I am on to other fun stuff.

I am currently working on the role of Catherine in Proof with my coach Caren Adorni. Next up: Chekhov. Looking forward to it. It is always great to be in class!

I will also begin my private sessions with voice-over coach Nancy Wolfson. I'm looking forward to expanding my horizons. One more way to make a living in this business! Phew.

The kids of Annie Jr. are coming right along and it's so fun to assist them. It helps me stay giddy about my own career. Their show will go up the first weekend of June and I will, of course, be there to crawl around after them in the dark!

May this greeting find you happy and healthy!

March 2007

EVERYONE LOVES THE FULL MONTY!

It's a hit! I'm so proud and having a blast! Here's what they have to say:

"Caroline Timm displays the exasperation and disappointment of Jerry's ex-wife... Expertly sung, danced and given comedic-dramatic acting – not only by the actors playing the desperate out-of-work sextet, but also by a talented, versatile supporting cast."
— Eric Marchese, ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER, March 1, 2007

"The show's improbable charms are winningly revisited in a big-scale staging by Musical Theatre West that puts David Yazbek's funny yet touching songs and Terrence McNally's laugh-out-loud dialogue into the mouths of some of the region's most accomplished musical theater performers." (and) "This presentation wonderfully counterbalances the playful mischief with human, heartwarming moments...the rock 'n' roll score sounded pretty terrific, and tears sprung to many an eye, sometimes due to emotion and sometimes in reaction to sight gags."
—Daryl H. Miller, LOS ANGELES TIMES, Feb. 27, 2007

"From the very get-go, everyone in this outstanding MTW production performs as one seamless ensemble. They all explode from the stage, hit their stride and never miss a beat."
—By Shirle Gottlieb, SPECIAL TO THE PRESS-TELEGRAM
