    Original Sound Designer
    Peter McBoyle

    Peter’s renowned sound design work has been a central feature in productions at most of the major regional and commercial theatres in Canada over the past 30+ years. In the US he worked with companies based in New York, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Boston, Chicago, and Dallas. He spent over 26 years at the Stratford Festival where he designed more than 80 productions. His Broadway credits include Come Fly Away and Barrymore and he designed the American national tours for Sister Act and Catch Me If You Can among others. As an instructor Peter taught at Toronto Metropolitan University (formally Ryerson University) and Humber College. As a mentor he inspired and guided a generation of sound designers in the performing arts in Canada and the US. He holds a Bachelor of Music, and Masters of Music (Media and Technology) from McGill University. Home and anchor for Peter was Stratford, ON with his wife Meghan and daughters Ella and Beatrice—the value and importance of his work and legacy live on in this production which he was very grateful to have been involved in.
