Three things in life that, once gone, never come back: Time, Words & Opportunity.


Background Information

 

Tony Jerris is an accomplished playwright, author, and screenwriter. His off-Broadway play TELL VERONICA! played at the Grove Street Playhouse in New York City before premiering in Los Angeles. The Los Angeles Times raved: “Playwright Tony Jerris’ cult hit TELL VERONICA! managed to give broadcast burlesques a run for their money with a raucous send-up of Oprah, Sally Jessy and Ricki Lake rolled into one hot pink hot-flash of a show!”

Tony’s other New York credits include his play The Hostesses, which he later adapted into a short film, earning him a spot in the 2007 Big Damn Film Festival. His musical Gina’s Parole was showcased at the New York’s Dramatist’s Guild and ASCAP Musical Festival, before winning a spot in The Peekaboo Festival at The Mark Goodson Theatre in New York. As an author, Tony created a trilogy of children’s books. The first in the series, The Littlest Spruce, was voted “Best New Children’s Book” at the North American Book Exchange and was also featured on Good Morning America.

He also co-authored the book Heads Or Tales, and several of his screenplays have placed in various writing competitions including The Nicholl Fellowship Awards, The Writer’s Digest Writing Competition, and the Project Greenlight Screenwriting Contest. Tony’s current ventures include a new series of children’s books that teach kids about the environment and a family musical called The Littlest Witch that is being licensed out by Steele Spring Theatrical Licensing. Also, his new book, Marilyn Monroe: My Little Secret, is currently available on amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.
