Tim Dietlein
Director

Tim started his theater career at the ripe old age of six months where he played the part of a baby. To this date, it was, and still is his finest performance. He thinks “type” casting had a lot to do with it! The theater bug bit him, and bit him hard. As a result, Tim has been involved in theater, in one capacity or the other, for over 50 years. The last 35 years saw him working as a director and actor in the Los Angeles area where he was directly involved in hundreds of productions. Tim is honored to work with the talented cast and crew.
