our colleagues and your community what it looks like to live with love and operate with decency." Michele Obama

Shakespeare Alive! This is beginning to feel like a Company lately! And that's an amazing feeling!! Thank you, Denise, for orchestrating all this and making it possible for me to meet all these wonderful actors!" (Katie Sparer, History Alive actor, Acting teacher 2021)

"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

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

We are an arts education company, dedicated to support, inspire and challenge artists and writers in creating an informed history.
