Dennis has been involved with the Muni since he was cast in 1967’s Camelot. He loves to tell people how he got to “hold a spear.” Dennis’s mother, Virginia, followed him onstage and was in the cast of a number of shows. Over the years, Dennis has performed in, assistant directed, co-directed, stage managed, and produced a number of shows. Most of Dennis’s roles were in the chorus due to the fact that he could dance well. He says that the chorus is where “you have the most fun.” Dennis was also a longtime Board of Managers member including several stints as President. He is now a member of the Board of Trustees.
