Thomas Anawalt CC '09 is active in Columbia's theater community. Many students fail to associate him with the characters he plays, as he is often made up to look very different than himself in productions. He is best known on campus as the guy who broke the window in Will Snider's Stop Changing/Everything Different and as Gramps, the Manhattanville refugee, from Insufficient Funds (113th Annual Varsity Show). He based the character upon his own grandfather, Buz "Gramps" Anawalt, a man who spent two weeks with a thumb tack in his foot, feeling no pain. His other grandfather, Dick Cunningham, is a painter. His nudes, landscapes and Premier Coup paintings can be seen at franciscunningham.com. Besides shouting out to his grandfathers on wikicu, Thomas enjoys acting like his grandfathers and spending time with artists and women.
