Originally from Camrose, Douglas Nyback got his start doing Musical Theatre under the tutelage of Charlene Brown, Tom Spila, and Dave McDougall. His first credits came from stages right here in town as a member of the Churchmice Players with starring roles in both The Boyfriend and Guys and Dolls. In 2003 he moved to New York and has since become an actor, screenwriter, and producer with over a decade of experience in projects ranging from independent films, to major network television series and studio features. Douglas is a founding partner of Monolith Pictures and has written and co-written multiple screenplays and worked extensively as a script advisor and story editor. Notable works include the Canadian Film Festival best feature film winner The Dancing Dogs of Dombrova as well as leading roles on SyFy’s Incorporated, People of Earth, Carter, Kit Kittredge: An American Girl, Defiance, and Amazon Prime’s American Gods. To this day he still credits Caroline Simonson at CCHS for teaching him he could write.
