“I am thrilled about playing the role of Peat in this production. Getting to be part of cool projects is the most rewarding thing as a performer. I’ve been lucky enough to have a few of these in my career so far, such as last year when I got to be the narrative driving singer in a musical about 2001 garage music. Astra is definitely a qualifier!
