Guthrie alum T.R. Knight is coming home to Minneapolis to help the Guthrie Theater celebrate a landmark anniversary, the Pioneer Press reports.
Knight, 40, who first played Tiny Tim at age 5 in the 1978 Guthrie production of "A Christmas Carol," went on to star in a dozen productions at the theater as well as roles on Broadway.
"I've had the great privilege of knowing and working with T.R. since he was a young actor," Guthrie director Joe Dowling said in a press release. "He is a consummate stage performer and a true representation of what it means to be a Guthrie artist and it brings me enormous pleasure to welcome him back to the Guthrie stage, where his career began, to perform at this joyful event."
The actor starred as Dr. George O'Malley in the hit ABC drama "Grey's Anatomy" from 2005-2009, and earned a Primetime Emmy Award nomination for the role in 2007.
Other Guthrie alums to be featured in the gala include co-hosts Greta Oglesby ("Caroline, or Change") and Sally Wingert (you name it) in the show.
Tony Award nominee Tracie Bennett ("End of the Rainbow") and the vocal ensemble, Cantus, are also scheduled to perform.
