Confederation Centre of the Arts is mourning the passing of sound designer Peter McBoyle, who passed away on September 9 after a battle with cancer. Peter designed the sound for several musicals at The Charlottetown Festival, including Evangeline, Kronborg, Jesus Christ Superstar, Anne of Green Gables – The Musical™, and Tell Tale Harbour.
One of Canada’s most in-demand sound designers, his work was enjoyed on stages across the country, and on national tours of musicals like Catch Me If You Can, West Side Story, and Legally Blonde.
“Peter was the top of his field. He was a mentor, collaborator, and creative force in our industry. His passing is a tremendous loss to The Charlottetown Festival and national theatre community at large. We are all mourning the loss of this brilliant colleague and friend,” says Adam Brazier, artistic director of performing arts at the Centre.
Confederation Centre of the Arts board and staff extend sympathies to his wife Meghan and children, Ella and Bea.
