What the critics say:

TRYING

Hadres … gives a master's class performance as the 82-year-old who is accepting that he will not be alive much longer, but doesn't like it. (He) is terrific in a showy role that he easily inhabits and carries with aplomb.

JULIUS CAESAR

Peter S. Hadres is an ideal choice to play the quietly intense, contemplative Brutus.

RUMORS

Hadres and Cone make the strongest couple, with his vain way of seeking out a mirror, and her crystal-worshipping vapidity.              San Francisco Chronicle

 

A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM

Peter S. Hadres is brilliant as Puck. His boyish enthusiasm is paired with an acrobatic ability as he bounds around in the action. The charm in which Hadres presents his character pulls you right into his world.     Lompoc Record

A CHRISTMAS CAROL

Peter S. Hadres is a perfect Scrooge, hard as stone in the beginning, gradually softening as the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future terrify him at first, then pique his curiosity and finally enlighten him.                 SLO Tribune

THE FIREBUGS

Hadres’ Eisenring is an eerily perfect blend of the Emcee in Cabaret and the Joker in Batman, spreading sharp insights about the gullibility of the middle class with airy bonhomie.                The Bay Area Express

ROMEO AND JULIET

Peter S. Hadres, as Friar Laurence, is perhaps the strongest presence, aside from the title characters.  He delivers the language with drama, yet with a more natural style of speech and gesture.           Santa Barbara News Press

BOY GETS GIRL

Mercer moves from sympathy to true understanding. It’s a role that Hadres handles deftly, creating a character that we not only empathize with, but also identify with.

LOVE'S LABOURS LOST

The true leads were admirably carried by Peter S. Hadres as Berowne and Shana Wride as Rosaline.  Both possessed the strength to carry off the roles, as well as the rakish sophistication so essential to the period.

                                          Idaho Statesman

YOU CAN'T TAKE IT WITH YOU

Hadres strikes just the right gently irreverent tone as Grandpa. He gets to deliver some of the best lines, displaying the renowned Kaufman and Hart wit.                Santa Maria Times

MEASURE FOR MEASURE

Hadres embodies Angelo, the tough but foolish man with a great desire to exert influence. Hadres skillfully portrays Angelo’s lust for power.                   Santa Maria Times

PRIVATE LIVES

Peter Hadres is wickedly charming as Elyot, a likeable cad who lives for the moment. He expresses sarcasm with biting wit, and fluid body language defines his superficial façade.

THE WEIR

PCPA resident actors Peter S. Hadres, who plays the somewhat used-up Jack, and Andrew Philpot… both offer seamless portrayals of their characters. They don’t merely act, they become two locals in a pub in the Irish countryside.            Santa Maria Sun
