Lisette Henry

17 appearances in RDG productions

Lisette gained her early drama experience through the Sundowners Youth Group and made her first main RDG production as one of the children in Lark Rise in 1987. She went on to play in Woman in Mind and Visit, The.

Her fine singing voice has featured in Billy!, Songs of the Century and Dear Diary.

However it is in our festival plays where Lisette has made the greatest impact. Her role as the sexually yearning daughter in the atmospheric Scarecrow won her a Best Actress Award an ensured its success at the 1999 All-Winners Festival. In 2000 further plaudits followed. Her performance as Cordelia in Lears Daughters was highly praised at all the rounds leading to the British Final - and at the International Final at Monte Carlo.

After undertaking an Acting Course in London, Lisette returned to us to marry our Musical Director, Paul Henry and to appear in the title role of Amy's View. Most recently she won the Berst Supporting Player award for her fine performance in The House of Bernarda Alba.
