Arne Larsen - Actor, Singer, Producer
In 1999 I decided to try something different and joined a local community theatre production of The Pirates of Penzance. Working as a policeman at the time, I had forgotten how much FUN it was to "play", but after that one little show my life took a different path. I have since had the great privilege to perform in over 40 productions, local and international, and work with (and learn from) some very talented fellow actors, directors and coaches.
A 2009 Ovation Award Winner for his performances in RENT (Tom Collins alt, SOL Soloist & Ensemble - FCP) and A New Brain (Mr Bungee - PTP), and a 2005 CTC Award Winner for his performance in HMS Pinafore (Dick Deadeye - FVGSS), recent roles include The Sound Of Music (Franz - Gateway Theatre), The Pirates of Penzance (Pirate King - COT); Little Me (Bernie Buchbaum - APPLAUSE!); Yeoman of the Guard - in which Arne also played Trumpet in the Orchestra (Jack Point - NSLOS); ANNIE (FDR, Mr Bundles & Ens - Gateway); Sweeney Todd (Judge Turpin - FCP); Ruddigore (Sir Despard - NSLOS); SAFE (Truss - WRPC); and Fiddler On The Roof (Tevye - UBCGS & FVS).
A multi-year soloist for the very successful annual Surrey Food Bank Fundraiser, A Night On Broadway, other memorable roles include Aladdin - which Arne also produced (Abanazar - FVGSS); Excalibur (Dame Mummy Penny - FVGSS); Pimpinone (Pimpinone) and Kaffe Kantate (Scheldrian), both for Opera Appassionata; and Princess Ida (Arac) and Iolanthe (Lord Mountararat) both in Festival in Buxton, England - where Arne will be returning in Aug 2012 to perform HMS Pinafore (Capt Corcoran).
As always, Arne thanks and sends much love to his family and friends for all their support, both on and off stage. You can catch Arne next at the PAL Theatre in Vancouver, where Arne will be playing Norbert in The Great American Trailer Park Musical!
