Doug Clemens

Doug has grown up loving music and performing in voice or piano since a very young age.  He was involved in many small skits for variety shows at NNU where he twice portrayed Michael Jackson.  Many around campus knew him as "Michael".  He has only recently been drawn into the world of drama and has been performing in the Treasure Valley for five years.  He has performed in the last five Living Christmas Tree productions.  His favorite production was the musical, Cotton Patch Gospel, where he played various roles including Joe.  He has also performed in Shakespeare's Hamlet and Macbeth.  He enjoys making different noises when he's bored, including cat noises.  It's how he met his wife.
