Tim Behrens comes from an acting family. His dad was a well-known radio and TV actor, who wrote material for several comedians, including Tony Randall and Don Knotts. His Mom was a working actress for 60 years! Her stage name was Amzie Strickland and she guest-starred on more than 600 TV shows; from I Love Lucy to the And Griffith Show to ER. Growing up in a household of two actors, Tim avoided acting like the plague…until some moment of deranged alchemy got him on stage for the first time at age 32. Then he actually studied acting and was the assistant and master student of Albert Salmi for two years.

Tim was the managing/artistic director of Centre Theatre Group for 6 years, and the founder (along with his wife, Leslie Ann Grove) and artistic director of CenterStage and Ella’s Supper Club, all in Spokane, WA. He was the Marketing Director and a featured performer at Rockin’ B Ranch near Liberty Lake, WA, for three seasons.
Tim and Patrick McManus celebrated 20 years of touring McManus Comedies in October of 2012! Pat celebrated by phoning Tim from an easy chair, while Tim was stuck in Winnemucca trying to find the theatre in an early but devastating snow storm.

We invite you to bring your spouse (or a guest) for this fun-filled evening of celebration; however banquet meal tickets MUST be purchased prior to the deadline (April 13) and WILL NOT be available to purchase onsite. Tickets range in price from $45-$55, depending on meal selection.


On Monday, April 21, come join your friends and associates for a fun round of golf on the historic greens known as Gearhart Golf Links. This “links-style” golf course is located in the town of Gearhart on the beautiful North Oregon Coast.

We will have a shotgun start at noon! Your golf package includes your 18-hole green fee, ˝ cart, driving range, box lunch and prizes for $80. Please provide your average 18-hole score and preference on players when you register. The deadline to register for golf is April 14. This will allow time for team placement. There will be no add-ons or refunds after this date. Substitution upon written request will be considered.

Golf registration is now closed. If you need to cancel your golf, please contact Cameo Management. If you have a substitution, please contact Russ Thomas, 503-537-1233
