"Greenhorn Texan" Excerpt: The Broadway Museum Launch! May 11, 2023

Next Book Signing Event: The Lambs - June 23, 2023

We are beyond proud of what we've collectively created for "Cinderellas of West 53rd Street: Stories from the Legendary Rehearsal Club!"

Carol Burnett, Blythe Danner and others are recognizable, well-known RC Alums.  Each talented Cinderella memoir shares their adventurous, determined, generous spirits.  Similarly to those anonymous, back-up dancers who tipped their top hats during “Singular Sensation” (the finale to A Chorus Line), by the time the last page turns, you will know these women.  Maybe recognize yourself?  What we all do for love. 


Our Shakespeare Alive! COMPANY, began the New Year reading Love Labor's Lost -- cute moment between hubby & me as "Katharine & Dumain" below. We moved immediately into Romeo & Juliet and Richard II. Page Clements, continues as our Shakespeare guru, and read the "Countess" in our final play before summer break: All's Well That Ends . . . (not so) Well!


The "new" corporate entity of TRC is no longer a focus in my life, however, I continue supporting The Rehearsal Club's "new" initiatives with their Residency Program at The Webster Apartments. If you're a talented young professional woman seeking subsidized housing go to the NEW REHEARSAL CLUB SITE for more information.

NOTE: Until the original history and personal web pages of all our members are transferred over, the ORIGINAL SITE (which I built with much support from so many others) remains up.


As always, thank you to the fans of Broadway and daytime dramas who remember and stay in touch via social media..

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.
Shakespeare readings continue in 2023. Archived videos (like The Tempest, 2021 above) are archived on our site:
