Burton Bumgarner

Burton grew up in North Carolina, and began writing plays in 1994. He has worked as a director and musical director, and run lights and sound. He also makes a very courteous and helpful usher. To date he has written over 70 plays, including full length comedies and dramas, one acts, and seasonal plays. He also writes under the pseudonym Andrew Ross. Many of his scripts are particularly appropriate for middle and high school students. They have large casts, single sets and are broken down into easily rehearsed scenes. A number of plays are adaptions from literary works students read in language arts classes: such as Homer, O. Henry, Saki, Bent, de Maupassant, Twain and Shakespeare.Burton also writes for adults. He is a three time winner of the Robert J. Pickering Award for Playwriting from the Coldwater Community Theater, Coldwater Michigan. In 2004 he won the McLaren Memorial Comedy Playwriting Festival in Midland, Texas. His plays have been produced across the United States and Canada, and in Europe, Australia and Japan. Burton has written lyrics and voice overs for Kindermusick International, including the CD Alpha Building Crew which won the Creative Child Magazine Educational CD of the Year for 2006. He earned a Bachelor of Music degree from Greensboro College, and a Masters of Music from Southern Methodist University. When he's not writing hes thinking about writing.
