Denise Chanterelle DuBois is an author, movie actress, active in live theatre and a business woman. She lives in Brookings, Oregon, having moved there from Portland 4 years ago. Upon arrival, Denise resurrected her acting career (from the early 1980’s in San Diego), at the Chetco Pelican Playhouse, (CPP) in Brookings, appearing in: Romeo & Juliet, and performing lead roles in: “Gladys in Wonderland” & “Nunsense the Musical” and has been cast in “Clue” which opens in early summer at CPP. In addition her memoir; “Self-Made Woman,” is the setting for a full length feature film titled: OH, DENISE! with over a year of filming nationwide now complete. The movie is currently being edited with release date TBA. Denise enjoys hiking the dramatic SW Oregon coast from her front door, hiking in Redwoods National Park, located minutes away in California, as well as enjoying the bountiful fresh seafood & river salmon the region has to offer, in what’s known as the “banana belt” of Oregon due to the mild-Mediterranean year round marine climate.
