Theatre is one facet of Dennis’ many interests. Being retired, he has discretionary time for theatre, gardening, knitting, reading, travel with his wife Denise and regular participation in his faith community. Recent past performances can still be numbered on fingers. Meaningful performances include the 1969 TiTG inaugural production of South Pacific as a pit musician, TiTG’s 1970 production of Sound of Music cast as Rolf Gruber. This production included his father, sister and brother. And as Fagan in Oliver, The Dalles Community Theatre’s 1994 production whose cast included his oldest daughter. These are memorable productions for family involvement in Community theatre. Has performed in recent years in several other local productions.
