Tom Hill is an investment professional by day, a dedicated actor by night, and a lifelong Browns fan by both. He has appeared regularly at Rabbit Run Theater (Durdles in The Mystery of Edwin Drood, various characters in The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby 1&2, George Hay in Moon Over Buffalo, Sam/Jesse/Roy in Plaza Suite, Bumble in Oliver! and Dr. Chasuble in The Importance of Being Earnest) and at The Fine Arts Association (Edna Turnblad in Hairspray, Serge in Art, the Music Man quartet, Val Skolsky in Laughter on the 23rd Floor, The Rev. Dr. Harper in Arsenic and Old Lace, and Henry in Fantasticks.)

Some favorite roles in other Cleveland-area theaters include Max Bialystock in the Chagrin Valley Little Theater production of The Producers, Pseudolus in the Huntington Playhouse production of A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Scrooge in Geauga Lyric’s Christmas Carol, Juror 7 in Blank Canvas Theatre’s Twelve Angry Men and Treasurer Cooley in Lakeland Theatre’s revival of Anyone Can Whistle. He has also appeared at Lake ErieCollege, LakePerforming Arts and in 15 editions of the WRJSL biennial Red Stocking Revue.

In real life Tom is the owner of Thomas Hill Investment Services and co-owns Family Karate with his wife of over 30 years, Libby. He is the father of two grown sons and grandfather to a grandson (and a granddaughter on the way!)  He is an emeritus member of the board of directors of the United Way of Lake County after having served on the board for 20 years, is a member and former treasurer of the Painesville Rotary Club, served St. James’ Episcopal Church as Senior Warden of the Vestry and is currently chairing the church’s capital campaign to renovate its space to better serve the more than 20,000 meals it serves the needy each year, and is a 20-year member of Painesville Gyro. Tom has been a Browns fan for as long as he can remember and counts his Jim Brown autographed football among his most prized possessions.
