Denise Crais
  • I completed an MA in Theatre at the University of Houston and have studied at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts in London, Lincoln Center Theatre in New York, and Steppenwolf Theatre in Chicago. I have earned degrees in Theatre from Hunter College and the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, both in New York City, where I lived for six years. I look forward to sharing my knowledge and love of theatre with my students again this year at MHS.

    Along with Cherie Ducote Firmin, I am one of the co-sponsors of the MHS Drama Club. Between Talented Theatre and Drama Club, the MHS Theatre department mounts five mainstage productions annually in addition to several smaller performances. We end the year with our annual Film Fest. All events are open to the public, so please come and get involved! We have "work days" before every show where we need the help of our parent volunteers, and we are starting a parent booster club this year. Please contact us to get involved!

    I am currently on a Leave of Absence for the Fall 2017 semester. Please refer to Sarah James for Talented Theatre II and IV information. Thank you!
