Tim McDonald is going to make the world a better place through musical theatre. A respected playwright, director, and educator, in 2006 Tim founded iTheatrics to help students in communities across the nation experience the transformative power of the arts. The company’s innovative products have earned it a distinguished list of clients, including Jim Henson Company and Disney Theatricals. His production, A Year With Frog & Toad, was nominated for three Tony Awards, including Best Musical, and was performed in Chico this winter as part of its nationwide tour. While his national reputation continues to grow, Tim is also beloved in the North State, as one of the founders in the 1990s of the popular Chico City Light Opera.
