Dennis Whipple

Over the past seventeen years, Founder and Artistic Director Dennis Whipple has developed the Great River Educational Arts Theatre (GREAT) into the premiere theatre of central Minnesota. His passion for arts education led to a successful public election campaign to serve on the St. Cloud District 742 School Board where he currently serves as co-chair. Dennis has directed more than 50 community theatre and children’s theatre productions and leads the GREAT Summer Theatre camps that serve over 1,500 youth each summer.
