"Your eyes, as we said our goodbyes. Can't get them out of my mind...and i find i can't hide. From your eyes...the ones that took me by surprise. The night you came into my life, where there's moonlight i see your eyes. How'd i let you slip away when im longing so to hold you, now i die for one more day, cause there's something i should have told you, there's something i should have told you...when i looked into your eyes. Why does distance makes us wise? you were the song all along, and before this song dies. I should tell you, i should tell you, i have always loved you...you can see it in my eyes."

GUESTBOOK AT THE BOTTOM
Hi!! My name is Lars I'm 19, born January 16th, 1981 in a small town of 3500 in the middle of Iowa, i led a fairly normal life growing up. I tried the whole sports thing in 7th grade, i was so puny i sucked ass at it all, so i got into speech, drama, plays, music, musicals, band, choir, you name it i did it in high school. I found i could be fairly good at this so i continued to do so. Written down for you, somewhat in chronological order, are the things i did and how much i liked or disliked them down these pages. I graduated from Roland-Story High School. I am going to Waldorf College. I am currently in my 5th semester at Waldorf, making me oficially a junior. I am majoring in Communications, computer graphics/journalistic shtuff emphasis(i'd like to do avertisement and makle programs and web pages and all that advertising and promotional stuff for a major theatre if i dont make it as an actor), and im also majoring in Theatre :-) I plan on doing this then graduating then maybe going to a university to major in musical theatre or maybe just vocal then im moving out to NYC to pursue my acting career, auditioning for plays and musicals...there i want to make a living. However i am now getting married June 23rd and having a kid in october so i wont be going out to NYC for a LONG time now, but i can always wish :-) I love my wife a lot and i will love my kid even more so im pumped!!
here's a picture of the
ever-so-famous(well to people at my school, ok not even
there either)trio of Romeo & Juliet. Jason is on the
left, Jason(who is down in my people i wish to
acknowledge)is in the middle and Im on the right...
here's one of my senior pics...
Little MORE About Me
I suppose you might want to know MORE
about the creator of this wonderful site,
well my name is Lars! Yes i am very Norwegian...as a
matter of fact im went to Norway the summer of '99 from
July22-August 9. be jealous. I have two
older sisters and a mom and a dad. I am the youngest.
Some say the youngest is the most spoiled and i would not
say that. Youll see a picture of my family sometime. In
high school i kept myself very busy i wouldnt have it any
other way though...I was involved in Large Group and
Individual speech, Solo/ensemble contest, Mixed Chorus,
Mens Chorus, Chamber Choir, Golf, Fall Plays, Musicals,
Variety Shows, Summer Musicals, and Band i think thats
it. I bet its not but i cant think of anything else. I
cant tell you about scholastics because i sucked at
those. I wasnt even in the top half of my class. I was
very close though. I NOW KICK ASS AT SCHOLASTICS IN COLLEGE SO WOOOOOOHOOOOOO 3.4 BABY!!!!!! SO smartness is not me...um...i cant
think of anything else and im gonna stop for now...c-ya!
favorite things to do
Sing--I sing 1st tenor in college choir and jazz choir, though i can sing anyting you need me to. I'm in Choir and Jazz Choir Band and i play the Euphonium
Act--i have been and still am involved in many
productions. You'll see them all down the page a bit
Rollerblade--I used to
only rollerblade but i bought myself a pair of
Roces Fifth Elements and want to start aggressive
I also like to
golf---not much else to say about golfing but i
Listen to music--i
mainly listen to Musicals and Operas. MY favorite
musicals would be RENT, Les Miserables, Phantom Of
The Opera, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor
Dreamcoat, Into the Woods, West Side Story, Miss Saigon, Cats, My
Fair Lady, Music Man, Pirates of Penzance, Guys
and Dolls. And my favorite operas would be Madame
Butterfly and La Boheme.
Im was in speech in high school. I got the
honor of going to all-state my senior year in my
ensemble Romeo & Juliet--it was a 3-man
ensemble with my friends Jason and Jason.
Hacky Sack--its fun, no
matter if its "cool" anymore or not.
Listen to RENT---i got to see it twice when
it came to Des Moines. I rushed for 13 hours with
some friends and got 2nd row seats. Then i got a
guitar pick from Roger(Christian Mena) and got to
meet some of the cast after it. I have also seen in Mnpls/St Paul in the 16th row and i saw it in Iowa City 4 times. LOTS of stories about that so just ask me im not gonna type it all. I highly suggest
you look into this musical...it will change your
life. It's the best!!
John Saul, Dean Koontz, Tom Clancy (there ya go
Ted! and my mom!) the guys that wrote the Left
Behind series, GOOD BOOKS!

around to it!
Watch TV and Movies--if
i have time i like to watch movies and TV shows.
Good movies are impossible to name since there are so many!
GUESTBOOK AT THE BOTTOM
Ok, so as you've read
from above, I like Theatre, drama, acting,
singing, whatever you wanna call it, i like it!!
Here's my rap sheet so far. It's not glamorus but
it's something to be proud of is what people have
MY GUESTBOOK AT THE BOTTOM
My Acting Career!
Back To The 50's---This is my first high school
production and it took place my the last half of
my freshman year. i was too much of a wuss to try
out for the play my freshman year...i was on crew
though! So this is about the 50's as you could
guess. I was in a commercial...i was a little kid
that wanted to watch Tv, it was for a new Crosby
TV. And then i was in The Mickey Mouse Club i was
ROY! and i was a mousketter(however you spell
that). We sang some cool songs. Then i was also
in the hit parade.
M*A*S*H---What can i say, this was the
first play i was ever in, or ever tried out for,
and it's my favorite. I was Captain Walter
Waldowski(Walt), owner of The Painless Polish
Poker Parlor and Dental Clinic. It was a very
rewarding role. I had to go from fun, to
suicidal(not having to laugh on stage while
people are poking you in the sides and calling
you funny names aint easy!) and then back to
normal again. It left me feeling like I did
something, like i could be something. As you'll
find out that changes.
Guys & Dolls---This was SO much fun. My first
musical. My part was a crapshooter. Just some
background people who sing and dance. It was more
than that though. Boy did we ever sing and dance!
We had an awesome dance and our songs rocked! I
dont know what else to say. Danny was the lead!
And so it was so much fun to act next to him. A
good friend of mine too. He blew everyone away on
stage! So i was not sad at all about the part
that i got at all. I still look back on this
musical and smile :-)
Seven Brides For Seven
is my first time trying out for JSTT which is
Judge Story Theatrical Troupe. And that is a
community theatre we have. People from around the
neighboring areas come and try out and perform.
So as you can tell i made it. I was a lumberjack
and a suitor. my name was "jeb" as a
suitor. My sister was a daughter. And two of my
friends were brothers. Oh well...it was a fun
musical roughly put together. I enjoyed it
though. "Nuff said i guess...
The Pink Panther Strikes
play of Lars' High School career. A fun one. My
part was Hindu Harry and the mexican assasin.
Jason was the lead. We had to do an assasin scene
and our director let me choreograph it so i did,
kind of. I would have to say that i wasnt exactly
thrilled with the part i got, but i lived and did
my part as best as i could. No matter what anyone
says, and i know someone will have something to
say(behind my back or to my face)it's hard to
watch two of your best friends get up on the
stage and kick ass at their parts, their LEAD
parts. Jealousy is gonna run through a person's
head. but enough about that. Nonetheless i
enjoyed this play and am glad to have it a part
of my acting career.
The Sounds of Cinema--this would be the 2nd variety
show for Lars. in this I was in State Fair it was
a song and dance thing and i was in Saturday
Night Fever...that was kinda fun...but thats all
i was in...so enough of that.
My Fair Lady---Kick my own butt!!! This
musical was awesome!! Took place the summer after
my junior year. 2nd JSTT production. GREAT music
GREAT actors a GREAT time. I was a butler of some
kind called a footman and i was a chorus part.
And i didnt care what anyone else had. i LOVED
every minute of this Musical and would do it
agian anytime. Paul the lead(if you know him you
know him i dont need a last name)was AWESOME!! i
liked my part i hated the songs for the butler
but i loved all the chorus songs and the dancing
i got to do!! Funny part of this play is that i
was in more dances and songs but they cut me out
and they had a solo they gave em and everything
and they cut that from me too...and i think there
might have been something else...but i got the
award for the Super Trouper because i got kicked
out of soo many things. But i LOVED it anyways!!
great great great music :-)
The Thread That Runs So
my last, my senior year play, last ever :-( It
was a good one too i guess! I was "Budge
Waters" a math whiz but very shy and doesnt
talk unless spoken to. And im not like that at
all...but people did tell me i did the part very
well so thats good. It was a fairly decent sized
part, so that was good. Jason Mortvedt was the
lead again...and he did do a very good job! Im
serious hats off to Jason. SO that was a good
play to end on i guess. All the plays i was in
was a god experience for me and my acting
ability. I enjoyed my high school play career and
cant wait ot see what happens in college.
The Music Man--- Now its no surprise i wasnt
the most excited with the part i got. yes its
jealousy again. I was Traveling Salesman #1 and
Constable Locke. My friends got...the quartet
parts and the leads. Im used to it by now...but I
was still a little saddened by it. But i did a
good job and i LOVE the Train scene. what a way
to open the show. We sit on stage and wait for
the curtain to come up...and its the hardest
scene in the whole musical. So its very nerve
racking. Challenged me...so that was good.
Overall i was happy with the musical my last high
school production :-( i cried...and rightfuly i
should! I loved plays and musicals. I dont feel
the need to explain myself. I would have liked to
have Guys and Dolls be my last musical but oh
well. Two thumbs WAY up and hats completely off
to Nick who was the lead and a great friend of
mine. He did GREAT!!
Pirates of Penzance---Took
place the summer after my senior year. it was
great. Once again GOOD music. I LOVED the songs.
Addicting songs. The lead was great. Then of
course theres Sharon. Man Man Man i know i forgot
to metion her earlier. But i will briefly
say...the greatest singer ive ever known. WOW WOW
WOW!!!! and stage presence...she rocks!! ok
enough. I guess i should tell you...i was a
household member person. Then in the second act
we rocked...i was a policeman and if you know
anything about this musical or have seen it...the
police are awesome. Bill(for those of you who
know who im talking about)is awesome!! great
great singer and he directs a high school choir.
he is a great policeman. It was awesome. The 3
JSTT productions i did all had diffrent directors
all very diffrent but they all worked out!! i
hope to be seeing myself in future plays and
musicals in college and in JSTT produtions for a
Cinderella---this is my most recent production as of now, being 7/8/00. It was done the summer after my freshman year of college. I had grown in my acting skills and my singing skills. Yet coming back to my hometown to my old theatre group they didnt seem to care. I got the same part i always got...CHORUS! I dont mind i like chorus. I also got to go out there before the show and in between acts to do a little norwegian comedy and also tell about the show and what's going on and what was left out of the program and waht not. It was a comedy routine wiht a friend of mine. it was great! I had an awesome time and everyone loved it. I'd have to call this my favorite JSTT production to date. The cast was just spectacular and we bonded as a family. I miss them all and i miss the musical! "Boys and girls like you and me" :-) gotta love it! Also the little antics we pulled on the prince. Too much fun! So that's all for this one! Another one in the belt, and another good one! :-)
My College Career
I am now going to be a sophomore at Waldorf College and have started acting again, well kind of. So here is my acting career at Waldorf so far as of 7/8/00 i am trying out for all 4 plays this up coming year, let's see if i get a part...don't worry i'll clue ya in as to if i get a part or not.
You Never Can Tell---Well this here is what we call a typical freshman in college part. As you can tell from the parts i got in high school though you know i shouldnt have expected much more. All i was was a waiter that was on for 5 minutes, 8 minutes if you want to be rambunxious. I served the food to the family and left. It was the kind of part that made you want to kill yourself, ill tell you why. We had so many props and so many exits and entrances, the other mian waiter and I. So we had all that to worry about and then the fact that we didnt choregraph the scene until the night of the performace was kind of stressful. I don't really feel like describing what the play was about, it was fun to watch though and the parts the people got fit them well so it was a pretty cool play!
Beloved Friend---here is my second college play. In this it was about two girls who became pen pals. Rachel is from Zimbabwe and Kristin is from Minnesota. They write each other and finally meet after a LONG time. I wont tell you what happens but it is really sad and is an awesome play. It shows how no matter your race color or location you can get along. It's just awesome! Hard to explain. Here is what the back of the script says:
"At the beginning, Kristin, a high school student in Minneapolis, is encouraged into corresponding with an African girl her own age who lives in Rhodesia and their exchange of letters results in dramatic developments. For Kristin, life is good - shaped by affluence. For Rachel, life is a power struggle against poverty, indignity and through a civil war. As the women mature independently, they also grow together, until their spirits seem closer to one another than to anyone else. At critical moments, each has an importent effect on the life of each other."
So there ya go folks! How's that for ya? I was a Rhodesian Soldier Two. I did not have a name but i had lines!! I loved my part. I had an influencial part in the play. My part had a lot to do with the play, i kill Rachel's boyfriend! He was a guerilla for the war, so he was a wanted man basically. Ok so that was my part. i liked my part a lot! So there ya go...I made lots of friend and grew closer to some people as of this play, so that made me happy too. I have two wonderful friend, Pam and Linda, who are from Zimbabwe. I also have a friend names Elisa, from africa, i dont know where exactly. Also Lasantha from Sri Lanka! AWESOME PEOPLE!
---Hey there! It's my sophomore year in college we're talking about now. This is the first play of the year. It's about Sir Oliver Surface(or Lady Olivia as we had played by Jenn) trying to figure out which one of his nephews, Joseph Surface(Nathan) and Charles Surface(Lucas), is worthier. There is the "school" of scandal which has Lady Sneerwell(played by my girlfriend Veronica), Sir Benjamin Backbite(that was me), Lady Teazel(steph), Crabtree(Becky) and Mrs. Candor(Melinda). What we do is gossip about everyone and stick our noses where we shouldnt. We manipulate things, and it's just a fun fun part! It was a fairly large part too, kind of like a quasi-lead. Loved it! It was a blast and the people rocked!! Awesome cast! I can't wait till my next play with these guys!
The Adding Machine---well here it is. The play that i was in but not in. This play was very messed up. It calls for like a cast of 15 and our director windles it down to like 5 and only like 3 are actually ever on stage. This is an expressionistic play and boy is it messed up and our director did it very expressionistically if thats a word. I auditioned and didn't get a part, later i found out it was because they wanted me for Love's Labour's Lost, but fuck that other's in this play here were in LLL too. Oh well FUCK IT. I did stick through it though and was props master. Because i was props master i got to be on stage, when the lights were out, but we also had to bring out these 12 heads that the main characters talk to, since they are suppose to be real people but our director didn't cast it like that and so it was just voice over the sound system. In bringing out these heads we were onstage and we had to act, so YEAH i had a part. PLUS i was Mr. 1, which is a person because there is Mr and Mrs 1-6, which were the heads if you were following along. So i was a character and i had to act, just my voice instead. So yeah i was in it, so eat me! :-D
---WOOOOO DOGGIES!! This one rocked my world. The best play i've EVER been in. I was a little dissapointed when the cast list came up, but i ended up LOVING my part and realizing how good of a part it is. I was Longaville...one of the 4 main guys. There are 4 main guys and 4 main girls. I dont feel like explaining the plot. It's super damn cool and i loved it a lot. Special recognition goes to my fiance Veronica :-) Luc (Dumaine) Stephen (king) Nathan (Berowne) chris (costard) and the other nathan (Boyet) of course there are so many more in the show, ok only like 6 more but yeah they all rocked! Great play great cast great director (Janice, go Janice) and great crew of all shapes and colors. Love ya ya, we'll see ya next year!!
