Part of a reference from Zip Theatre. April 21st 2010

I am pleased to give a very positive testimony to the high quality of Nigel's work.

He is an excellent company member who relates well to colleagues, management and members of the public with whom he comes into contact.

Nigel has a very intelligent approach to the text and his understanding of meaning is clearly conveyed. He is a fast and accurate learner, his vocal range is good and his characterisations are imaginative. Audiences respond well to his acting ability.

I have no hesitation in recommending Nigel Peever as an excellent candidate for employment.
Re Dick Whittington Octagon Theatre Yeovil. 2009/10

The Shakespearean villainy of Nigel Peever's awesome King Rat.

Jane McKell The stage

Re- Oliver! Lyceum Theatre Crewe.

Nigel Peever made a superb Fagin as one wouldexpect from a performer with his theatrical background

David Parkes

Nigel Peever excels as the villainous Wily wolf, wearing a shaggy suit and working the audience well, with threats to eat anyone unfortunate enough to cross his path the children loved him, yelling and booing whenever he appeared.

Chris Ramsay (Local paper review)
Georgian theatre, Richmond.
It has for me been the most happy and successful pantomime produced at this theatre and I would personally thank you for your tremendous contribution.

Graham D'Albert
15th December 1993
Needless to say the Theatre staff and myself have thoroughly enjoyed working with you and thank you sincerely for the enormous contribution your talents have made to it's overall success, I wish you well in your future career and hope personally that our paths will cross again.

Graham L D'Albert. Director, Wakefield Theatre Royal (Part of a letter re pantomime from 1992)
The evil King Rat is superbly played Nigel Peever with just the right amount of wickedness and humour.

Alison Butts - Western Gazette

Nigel Peever-I seem to remember he was great. He's a real pro, rather like a younger version of Michael Wisher. Knows what he's doing and just gets on with it.

Nick Briggs Actor and Producer Big Finish
Part of a letter about my Santa to Colwyn Bay, Shopping Centre Management 23rd Nov 1996

Santa is by far the most warm, authentic and Magical one I have ever had the pleasure of meeting.

Mrs S Diggle, Abergele.
The Tart and the Vicars Wife Danny Davies Productions June 11 1991

But the best laugh of the night came with a view of Nigel Peever's shorts. His characterisation of Henry, the young vicar was straight out of a comic strip.
