EP 5: A Little Something Extra with Dennis Dixon

“In meyes, youre not supposed to mistreat nobody.” This is the mantra that special guest, Dennis Dixon, tries to live by every day. From facing a near-impossible childhood to overcoming the odds, Dennis is an inspiration who shows us that no matter the obstacles in our way, if we keep pushing, we can accomplish anything!  

He shares his amazing life journey and gives us a fresh perspective on how important it is to be accepting of people just as they are. We’re proud to have Dennis be a member of the GiGi’s Playhouse family and grateful for his role and support at our Little Rock Playhouse. This is a story you don’t want to miss!
