Larry Oliver

    Fittingly enough, Larry began his theater career over 20 years ago portraying Doc Gibbs in Our Town, a production put on by the Austin Police Department. This is fitting since Larry is a retired police commander, having served 25 years with the Austin Police Department. It took five more years, however, to bring him back to the stage, when Larry’s boss at APD persuaded him to audition for the role of Greg opposite her Sylvia in the Gaslight Theater’s production of Sylvia in Lockhart Texas. The rest, as they say, is history. Larry has appeared in more 30 theater productions in Wimberley, Lockhart, Round Rock and Austin. And, incidentally, he married his boss and Sylvia costar Bobbie Oliver. Between acting, traveling and fostering dogs, Larry finds time to volunteer as a mediator at the Austin/Travis County Dispute Resolution Center.
