Biography

Higham-Bill
Bill has been fortunate enough to have worked with Seattle Shakespeare Company a number of times and is continually amazed that he gets to come back to meet old friends and make new. His other past includes Theater Schmeater, Seattle Public Theater, Village Theatre, Interplayers, Edge of the World, Renton Civic, Driftwood, Seattle Repertory Theatre, Seattle Opera, and others. He was last seen this spring in the much ballyhooed indoor remount of Wooden O’s “The Taming of the Shrew.” Other favorite roles include Polonius in “Hamlet,” Nym in “Henry V,” Robert in “Proof,” Grandpa in “You Can’t Take It with You,” the Innkeeper in “Falstaff,” Henry Higgins, Colonel Pickering, and Nathan Detroit. He’d also like to thank John and George for this opportunity, but then he’d have to thank Paul and Ringo.
