Peter Nason

    An actor, director, and theatre teacher, Peter Nason fell in love with the theatre at the tender age of six when he saw Mickey Rooney in “George M!” at the Shady Grove in Washington, D.C. He has appeared in dozens of productions around the country, helmed several films and directed over thirty plays. His love of the theatre, and his passion for the craft of acting and directing, has led him to reach hundreds of Florida teenagers to help make the stage their home.  He has currently started a new theatre program at a Title 1 school where he hopes the students there will find the same joy of performing that he found.
 
A graduate of the University of Alabama and the Scuola Lorenzo de Medici in Florence, Italy, Peter is an award-winning playwright and has written for various periodicals and newspapers, including “The Tampa Tribune,” where he was a book reviewer and community columnist. One of his literary heroines, the late great Pauline Kael, summed up his philosophy of reviewing:  “In the arts, the critic is the only independent source of information. The rest is advertising.”   Peter resides in Wesley Chapel, Florida with his beloved Boston Terrier, Ike.
