Lars is a graduate of the Western Michigan University Theatre Department. Currently, he is playing the role of Vincent in "Swiftcurrent by Dusk" with Bare Backstage Productions. No stranger to the stage, he has an extensive theatrical resume which spans 40-plus years performing in over 100 productions. His theatre experience stems back to 1981 when he first began acting with the Kalamazoo Junior Civic. He has since been a resident company member for the Actors & Playwrights between 1992-1995 and the What A Do Theatre Company from 2014-2018, where he developed technical theatre skills as well as acting with many productions. In addition to performing at WMU, he has graced the stages of the New Vic Theatre, Kalamazoo Civic Theatre, Battle Creek Civic Theatre, South County Players, Center Stage Theatre, Great Escape Stage Company, Queer Theatre Kalamazoo, Face Off Theatre Company, Bare Backstage Productions, Celery Flats Shakespeare in the Park, Paw Paw Village Players and Three Rivers Community Players. When COVID-19 shut down theatre, Lars continued to find ways to hone his craft with voiceover work with podcasts with Paw Paw Village Players.
