Tim Buchheit

Tim Buccheit, Hall of Fame Award Recipient in 2020
Washington, Missouri

Tim Buchheit has served as a distinguished theatre educator for 31 years and is currently director of theatre at St. Francis Borgia Regional High School, home to Thespian Troupe 2787, where he developed the speech and theatre curriculum and oversaw the rebuilding and opening of a new theatre facility. Buchheit has proudly directed hundreds of productions, notably, a one-act previously performed at ITS. Buchheit, past treasurer for Missouri Thespians, is currently on the events committee. He has received the Walmart Teacher of the Year Award and the Missouri Thespian Educator of the Year Award. In 2006, he co-founded the Riverside Players community theatre to increase the awareness, education, and appreciation of theatre in Franklin county. Clayton Smith, Columbia College professor, and former student-turned-colleague noted, “Tim has shown me who I am, and who I can be. I know he helps other students and peers see this in themselves as well. He cares more deeply for his students and for his troupe than any educator I have ever known.”
