Tony Edwards began his theatrical career over thirty years ago when he was asked to write a children's show for the Balloon Theatre in Christchurch, Dorset, England. Since then, he has written over twenty children's plays, all of which have been performed in the Balloon Theatre between 1975 and 1993. They are still being performed locally, throughout the country, and now, with the advent of the Internet, throughout the world. Other works include short stories, one act plays, and a number of musicals and pantomimes, including the music and lyrics for the numerous songs involved in such shows. Some of his plays have won awards, and he himself is an award winning actor and director. He was Chairman of the Balloon Theatre for four years. He has made films with the local University, training films for local companies, and television drama. He was also involved in two films for the deaf that have been distributed worldwide. Tony currently acts with and writes for all Saints Dramatic Society (www.allsaintsdramaticssociety.com) and the professional theatre company, The Olde Tyme Players (www.oldetymeplayers.co.uk), both companies being based in the South of England.
