The list of amateur theater Peter did in school is not complete and only includes those plays Peter has mentioned. Peter has also mentioned doing (too) many Noel Coward plays during his student years.

Many thanks to Lorraine and Abby for tracking down some of Peter's more obscure roles. For more on Peter's many characters, visit Abby Sims page. Please send any corrections or additional info on Peter's work to me at AdamMethos@aol.com.
