Doug’s current news

Doug recently appeared as Doctor Pinch in the The Zephyr Theatre's production of Comedy of Errors.


Doug has been working full time as an actor, singer, and music director in southeast Minnesota for over ten years.  He recently relocated to the twin cities to continue pursuing opportunities for acting and live performance.  He majored in music at Carnegie Mellon University, and it was there that the theatre bug took hold.  But his love of acting goes back to the second grade, when he was cast as the only cowboy in the school play.  Favorite roles as a grownup include Pirelli in Sweeney Todd, Frank Abagnale Sr. in Catch Me If You Can, and the title role in Sherlock Holmes.  He has worked with Stephanie Zimbalist and Sally Kellerman in the film His Neighbor Phil, a story about the ravaging effects of Alzheimer’s disease.
