Ed Turner

Ed joined DMTC in 2008 and it’s fair to say his life has changed completely as he met his wife, Rebecca, in his first show with us, Fiddler on the Roof.

Since playing the part of Motel in Fiddler, he has gone on to play Bob Cratchit in Scrooge, Stanley in Hello, Dolly!, Jimmy in Grand Hotel and the Doctor in 42nd Street.

Ed has had a passion for performing since a very young age and for a number of years was a member of The National Youth Choir of Great Britain.

In 2005 he was one of twelve members selected to sing the national anthem before England faced Australia at Twickenham and in 2006, he sang before the FA Cup Final.

Ed has sung at the BBC Proms in the Royal Albert Hall on two occasions and in 2006, he toured central and Eastern Europe with the National Youth Choir.

For five-years Ed sang with Northern Spirit Singers; a choir based in Durham and conducted by fellow Sunset Boulevard cast member, Andy King.

2013 was a particularly special year for Ed in DMTC as he was cast as Beadle Bamford in our production of Sweeney Todd and also played the part of Richard Rodgers in Some Enchanted Evenings, a show to celebrate the genius of the legendary composer.

In 2013 Ed was also delighted and honoured to receive the Mary Hamilton Award, which is presented annually to a young member who has provided an outstanding contribution to the company.

In 2014 Ed went on to play the role of Barsad in A Tale of Two Cities and Hero in A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum.

Ed is also Chairman of the DMTC Entertainment Committee and has served on the Executive Committee as Child Protection Officer.
