PISTARCKLE OFFERING ACTING CLASSES FOR YOUTHS

March 24, 2003 – A 10-week series of Saturday afternoon acting classes for young people will begin this weekend at Pistarckle Theater in Tillett Gardens and run through June 7.
Robert Larsen will be conducting the classes for youngsters ages 12-18. Classes will meet from 2 to 5 p.m. The registration fee is $250.
Larsen, a psychotherapist, did post-graduate study under Dorothy Heathcote at University Upon Tyne in England in a drama in education program that focused on teaching other types of subject matter using drama techniques.
He toured out of New York with the P.A.R.T. children's theater company for two years and played the title role on Broadway in the children' s musical "Young Abe Lincoln."
He was director of children's theater at the University of Minnesota, Bemidji, and worked with The Children's Theater of Minneapolis. In his 25 years as a psychotherapist, he has utilized his theater background to help children "empower their imaginative self," a release states.
To reserve space in the classes or to obtain more information, call 775-7877.
