Miss A Columnist

Dena Miller is the Dallas Editor for Miss A. She has been described by Style Network as a "Queen Bee". Formerly a glam rock scene Diva, Dena is now a Socialite on the Dallas philanthropy scene, specializing in Polo events that benefit women's and children's causes.

While never forgetting her small town roots from a Midwestern farming community in rural Missouri, she’s fit right in the “Big D” since coming here in 1984. After 11 years of promoting the music scene, hobnobbing with the most popular bands from coast to coast, she switched gears after meeting her husband at the first Polo match she ever attended. Always one for excitement, Polo became her new rock n roll.
With her marriage and new found passion for polo, came Philanthropy. Miller founded the Ladies Polo Auxiliary of Texas in 2005 with the goal of promoting the Sport of Kings in north Texas via charity events for causes that are close to her heart. To date the LPA has raised over $500,000 for causes such as domestic violence, children with serious medical needs, therapeutic horsemanship, the Polo Training Foundation, children’s advocacy and food drives for north Texas food Bank. When not working on her own events she is attending Charity luncheons and balls as well as volunteering at golf tournaments and Special Olympics events. She is a member of the USPA Equine Welfare committee and on Board of Dress For Succes Dallas.

Writing has been a lifetime passion of Dena’s. Besides working on a book that proceeds will benefit domestic violence organizations, and writing for two national polo magazines, is a frequent contributor to Dallas area publications, winning Best Contributor Award from Dallas Morning News Neighborsgo, she is co-authoring a book on the phenomenon of cyber bullying by adult women, referred to as Cyber Harrassment.

Recap: Dallas Children’s Theater Presents The True Story Of The Three Little Pigs

threelittlepigsOn Friday, June 21 the lobby of Dallas Children’s Theater found kids squealing like little piglets in delight as they enjoyed the “Piggy World Party” to celebrate the opening night of DCT’s national touring production of the True Story of The Three Little Pigs. With the show being presented as a trial where the audience participates as the jury, it was perfect for the children to choose to be a pig or a wolf before the show began. Free mini Sprinkles cupcakes were enjoyed and live interviews were taped with attendees after the show. Faces were painted and ears were made before going in to watch the show and be part of the “jury”. The outcome was determined by the amount of  applause, or rather “oinking” the defendant received from the live jury. The ending may be a bit of a surprise for those familiar with the original tale! DCT’s national tour director Sally Fiorello says, “The kids will see that things are not always as they seem and that everyone deserves a fair chance in life- even in ‘Piggsylvania’.”

The cast consisting of  Ryan Page playing Alexander T Wolf, Angela Horn as Lillian Magill, prosecuting attorney, Samantha Parrish as Judge Prudence,  Shelley Olmes as reporter Julia determined to get to the truth, Ivan Jones as Rocky/Ensemble and Isaac Lee Littlejohn doing multiple characters (Martha/Billy/Ensemble) brought the hilariously popular book to life with comedic talent.  Penned by authors Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith in 1989, the play begins where the book leaves off. Catch the tale before it leaves Dallas to get the TRUE story of the Three Little Pigs!
