During that time Doug produced over 30 Musicals and Plays including “Camelot”, Jesus Christ Superstar”, “Evita”, “West Side Story” and “Tommy” just to name a few. In December 2005 Stage Struck produced its final musical ” Nuncrackers” and closed its doors forever.
After about a year off, Doug started to get the Theatre Bug. So after some discussions and the hiring on a new production staff. Rocking Horse Productions was formed.
In 2019, Rocking horse productions was recognized as a theater group in-residence by the Williamsville Arts and Culture Committee, and formed the
