Peter has directed productions for a number of youth theatre companies.

Most noticebly as Education Officer at The Maddermarket Theatre in Norwich (2000-2004) Peter helped to build a strong youth theatre programme of productions, training classes and  acting examination classes. In excess of four-hundred young people aged six years and upwards attended a range of classes every week at the theatre.

The company continues to go from strength to strength under the direction of Laura Cordiner.
