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.

September 21, 2018

Carolan Trbovich wouldn't mind if you summed up her life in a single word: Wicked. Oh sure, some would think it might mean that she was being labeled as crafty or iniquitous. But that's not the case. For her, the word 'wicked' means 'life saver.' Literally. Because of the popular Stephen Schwartz show, Ms. Trbovich is continuing to make her mark in the arts, doing what she does best.

BWW Review: Mad Theatre of Tampa Presents a Blissful IT SHOULDA BEEN YOU at the Shimberg
July 23, 2018

IT SHOULDA BEEN YOU, the joyous wedding day musical presented by Mad Theatre of Tampa, doesn't have a bad thought in its head. At times we wonder if it has any thought in its head, but rest assured, any thoughts it does have are good. The show contains some of the most mindless fun I've had at any musical of late; it's a guaranteed good time. Imagine the tickle of champagne bubbles in your nose, and that's the feeling you get while watching it. Giddy, goofy elation.
