Peter McAllum

Peter trained at London's Westminster Theatre, and worked as an actor back in his native New Zealand before making the move to Sydney some years ago. Since then he has worked extensively in Australian theatre, film and television.

His theatrical credits include Wild Honey (NIDA Studio Theatre), his critically-acclaimed portrayal of Edward Damson in Gift of the Gorgon (Phoenix Theatre Company), the merelyplayers production Birth, Death and Everything in Between (Tap Gallery), Navigating (New Theatre) and The Balmain Jesus (SBW Stables Theatre). He also played Leonato in the Shakespeare Under the Stars production of Much Ado About Nothing at Coogee.

Peter recently performed in back-to-back tours of Australia and New Zealand with Topol in the hit musical Fiddler on the Roof, and the NY-based production of Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends.

During tour ‘down-times’ back in Sydney he squeezed in The Night Heron (SBW Stables), Terrorism (Darlinghurst Theatre), Redheads (Old Fitzroy), Honeymoon Suite (New Theatre) and Away (Impulse Theatre).

Some of his recent TV appearances were in Home and Away, the telemovie Joanne Lees – Murder in the Outback, Criminal Investigation Australia and the NZ soapie, Shortland Street.

He also plays major roles in the soon-to-be-released feature films, Fragment and Submerged.

Peter is one of Australasia's foremost voice-over artists.
