Part of my activism began in a youth arts troupe, the Los Angeles Drama Club founded by my mother, Blaire Baron Larsen. I am Member #1 of the Los Angeles Drama Club. It began when I was 5.
There were two of us to start and now we are about 200 and operate year round in two areas of L.A.
We Are the country’s youngest Shakespeare Troupe, 10 years running. We always connect our plays to a current and relevant issue in our lives and that way Shakespeare comes alive even more. This year, The Tempest takes place on Tuvalu – an island that is being submerged by the ocean doe to man-made climate change.
A Winter’s Tale will honor the LGBT community by having the romance and marriage of Florizel and Perdita be two women! Our teens champion these causes and I am proud to be Member #1 of the LA Drama Club.
I am happy to share in the 10 year celebration Fundraiser and Shakespeare Youth Festival, L.A. Here is more about it.
