There is a new crisp in the air, leaves are changing colors and students have been back at school now for a few weeks; it must be that time of year...Eclectic Edge Ensemble is back in rehearsals! We will be back in the studio working on our next production "Snowbound: a journey from Autumn to Spring," a collaboration with Mad Munchkin Productions which performs February 17th-20th, 2011 at the Ritz Theatre. This season is bringing lots of new and exciting collaborations, projects and additions to EEE!
For those of you who attended our last production "For Sport's Sake," will remember the lovely and talented Mallory Dykema who played our pregnant and very hilarious soccer Mom. Well, that was back in mid-July and on August 21st, 2010 she gave birth to beautiful Harlow Emery. We all send huge congratulations to the Dykema Family!
It is really amazing to think about how incredible life is and the treasures around every corner. I met Mallory a few years ago in a production we both performed in at Saint Paul City Ballet. The following year I was thrilled to have her join Eclectic Edge Ensemble. She is a true gift in the company and is just an amazing performer that lights up the stage. During her pregnancy I was amazed at how well she did, how much she took on and the energy she brought to every rehearsal. Now we are returning to rehearsals, with Mallory jumping right back in, and we will be able to glance over to the corner of the studio to see Eclectic Edge Ensemble's first offspring and watch her grow with the company.
