E. Denise Royal, Theatre Arts

  • Ms. Royal is a bit of a gypsy having come to teaching later in life.  She is a graduate of Emerson College, Boston, MA where she earned her BFA in Musical Theatre/Acting and received a minor in Public Relations/Speech Communications. 

    She has worn many hats over the years having worked in entertainment for companies such as Warner Bros. Records and MCA/Universal TV.  She has also been a performer in LA & NYC, where she lived for 22 years before moving to Arizona. 

    Ms. Royal was thrilled to join the DEHS teaching staff in 2018 combining her varied Arts experiences to offer students perspectives from different aspects of working both as talent and behind the scenes in pursuit of living a "creative life."  Productions at DE have included: The Crucible, Beauty & the Beast, Luchadora!, and Hairspray.  Ms. Royal is thrilled to support and encourage the talented students at DEHS through CUTTING EDGE THEATRE and sponsor DEHS Thespian Troupe #6843.  She is also a proud member of the Conservatory of Arts staff.  

    Ms. Royal's classroom can be found in the Black Box Theatre, just outside of the Bookstore.  She hopes you'll stop by the Black Box soon to say hi and check out all the exciting goings-on happening in CUTTING EDGE THEATRE!
