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.

Devin is also a big foodie and loves trying new things and watching competition shows like Lego Masters, the Amazing Race, and almost any cooking show.

Donna McCowan

Mrs. Cratchit / Ensemble

For Donna, being a mom of three in real life made playing the role of Mrs. Cratchit a sensible and unintimidating initiation into the world of community theater! Prior to having kids, Donna spent time teaching English abroad and working in refugee resettlement. These days she can be found chauffeuring kids to activities, cooking, working on a sheep farm, and settling into the family’s new home in Buxton. She also spends time raising awareness about PANDAS, an often mis-diagnosed type of autoimmune encephalitis. Participating in Scrooge with her daughter Adira has been a thrilling experience!
