Denise joined the Players as a crew member for A Chorus of Disapproval in 1996 and has stayed ever since. Her first acting role was in Arsenic and Old Lace, and she appeared in productions such as The Odd Couple and The Children’s Hour before ‘resting’ for a few years while her children were very young. Denise has subsequently appeared in many productions, Rumours, Caught in the Net, Outside Edge and Tons of Money amongst others whilst also serving for several years as the Players secretary. More recently, she has been joined by her children in productions such as Richard III, A Voyage Round my Father and House and Garden. She played a real mother to her real son in The Accrington Pals and will shortly be appearing in Daisy Pulls it Off with her daughter. If there is a part for a mad, knife wielding woman, then that’s the role for Denise!
