David Edwards

David Edwards (Sound Designer, Rounding Third) is celebrating his seventeenth season as resident sound designer at the Laguna Playhouse where he has created sound designs for well over 100 productions for the Main Stage and the Youth
Theatre. Highlights of the last few years include designs for the national LORT tour of Copenhagen, Always, Patsy Cline with Sally Struthers, and the North American premieres of Lovers at Versailles and the Sondheim review Moving On. Favorite designs include The Last 5 Years, Picasso at The Lapin Agile, American Buffalo, Tuck Everlasting, The Woman in Black, and the West Coast premiere of The Secret Order. 

His sound designs have enjoyed successful runs at many other Los Angeles venues including The Coast Playhouse (with the Naked Angels company), The Matrix Theatre, the Norris Theatre, and the Tiffany Theatre, when the Playhouse’s production of The Last Session continued there. Closer to home, David’s designs have been heard at the La Mirada Center for the Performing Arts with McCoy-Rigby Entertainment and Musical Theatre West, and at South Coast Repertory. 

David also works as a freelance recording engineer and producer, and has recorded albums with a variety of artists such as The Tom Kubis Big Band featuring Jack Sheldon, folk icon John Renbourn, and the late, great Mr. Steve Allen. David also mixed the Cast Recording for the gum shoe musical Gunmetal Blues, and most recently engineered and co-produced new CDs for The Ron Kobayashi Trio-No Preservatives, Formula-Conduit, and The Ron Stout Quintet-For Chet and Other Heroes.
