Douglas Waterbury-Tieman grew up in Lexington, Ky.  He started playing the violin and performing onstage in the fourth grade and has been doing so ever since. Whether performing in musicals and plays, playing his fiddle or writing for the stage he finds great fulfillment in using the power of stagecraft and performance to positively impact his audience.  Douglas graduated from Belmont University in 2012 as an honors student with a BM in musical theatre performance.  He is also a professional fiddle player and recently appeared in Roundabout Theatre Company’s Robber Bridegroom as an onstage musician and clogger.  His other recent theatre credits include; A Christmas Carol, (Ensemble/Musician) at Actor’s Theatre of Louisville; Fiddler on the Roof, (The Fiddler), at Studio Tenn; Lost Highway, (Leon), and Cotton Patch Gospel, (Jesus), at Flat Rock Playhouse.  Douglas' writing for the stage was recently seen at Penn State as part of their Nu Musical Theatre Summer Festival with a staged reading of Deep Water Ballad, (Book by Douglas W. Tieman, Music/Lyrics by Chris Rayis).  Douglas is also a collaborative member of The Lobbyists, a NYC based band and theatre group who recently performed their concert-play SeaWife, at the South Street Seaport in collaboration with Liz Carlson and Naked Angles Theatre Co.  Douglas owes whatever success he has had to the love and support of his wife Annabelle and his family.
