Happy 2019 and thank you for tuning into this soap opera I call my life!

After a dacade thoroughbred dancing on Broadway (my last show: the original Pippin), another decade twinkling as a soap star in daytime ("Katie" on The Guiding Light - visit my blog for History Lesson #3 - and my latest "self-tape" audition for pilot season - sans agent submission), I've now gone silver and continue seeking opportunities to work with fabulous writers/directors/producers in this crazy business of show.

My theater company, Articulate Theatre is producing Protest Plays in April, a great way to stay sharp and showcase in New York.

Other creative projects you'll find if you take the time to enter my site: After 4 years as Chair of The Rehearsal Club, I'm stepping down to focus on finding funding to finalize our documentary (which has now led to our full incorporation as an organization); our company, Boockvor Productions, continues to produce History Alive for schools in the tri-state area; and my volunteer activities continue to feed my soul.

I love surprises.

"Denise Pence, well-known for her years of TV soap opera acting is even better in the flesh, a dancer, singer and comic who belts her way across her audiences and dominates the evening from start to finish." Irma La Deuce CT Journal (PS: I rarely audition for musicals these days - although I continue to love a good dance class).

Denise Pence is one of the most dedicated and prepared actresses I have ever directed. She takes directorial adjustments and delivers rich, sensitive moments of emotional truth. A joy to work with, a real professional. David Hausman, Director, Schreiber One-Acts

60 is the new 40, RIGHT?
