with Peter Jorgensen
A graduate of AMDA in NYC, Peter Jorgensen has earned a reputation as an exceptional musical theatre actor, director, and educator. In 2007, with Katey Wright, Peter founded Patrick Street Productions to produce extraordinary contemporary musicals. He has directed numerous award-winning productions for PSP and other theatres, including Avenue Q and Rock of Ages (Arts Club), Les Miserables and Fiddler on the Roof (Chemainus Festival), and The Light in the Piazza (PSP, Jessie Award, Best Production), and his musical adaptation of It’s a Wonderful Life has been produced at theatres across the country. Peter is Founder and Director of the Arts Club’s Teen Musical Theatre Intensive, teaches Master Classes through PSP, and sits on the Advisory Board for CapU’s Musical Theatre program. PSP’s Professional Intensive combines the rigor of Peter’s Master Classes with the immersive quality of the Arts Club intensive, and is partially inspired by the Menier Chocolate Factory musical theatre program, which Peter attended in London, UK in 2009.
