After spending seven seasons at the Stratford Shakespeare Festival, Michael Therriault left the classical repertoire theater for musical theater, starring as Leopold Bloom in the short-lived Toronto production of The Producers.

In 2006, Michael portrayed Tommy Douglas in the CBC Television special Prairie Giant: The Tommy Douglas Story. He was subsequently nominated for a Gemini Award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Dramatic Program or Mini-Series.

While on Broadway in a revival of Fiddler on the Roof, Michael got news that he had secured the role of Gollum in the Toronto premiere of The Lord of the Rings: The Musical. He received his second Dora for the performance.

When it closed, he returned to Saskatchewan to film the made-for-television adaptation of Guy Vanderhaeghe's The Englishman's Boy.
