27 years ago Norm gave up his job as a journalist at a Nashville TV station and moved to Chicago to further pursue his passion for acting. He quickly became on of the country’s top Voice Over Actors voicing for CBSNews, Subway, and the infamous Hillary Clinton 3AM political ad and more. Woodel’s TV and movie credits include The Client, George Lucas’ Radio Land Murders, Matlock, Early Edition, and music videos with Dolly Parton and Reba McEntire. But Norm’s local stage career began right here at BTE when he played Big Daddy in our production of Cat On A Hot Tin Roof. He’s done The Rivals, Someone To Watch Over Me, The Guys, The Weir, and Outside Mullingar at BTE as well. Having performed at Goodman and other Chicago theaters, Norm took the Best Supporting Actor Jeff Award for his portrayal of the father in Golden Boy at Griffin Theater in 2014.
