With dancing snowflakes, leaping fauns, waltzing flowers, and animals prancing out a holiday polka, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is a holiday feast for the whole family.  Over the past 17 seasons, EDE has gained a reputation for creating innovative, exciting productions for audiences of all ages. The artistic directors have brought in top theatrical and choreographic talent to create professional caliber performances in a wide range of dance styles, and the C.S. Lewis inspired production is no exception.  Rashid and Ernst lead a team of professional choreographers, which includes:  Mike Gosney, artistic director of Elements Contemporary Ballet; Julie Cartier, artistic director of Especially Tap Chicago; Annie Arnoult, artistic director of Striding Lion Performance Group; and Montreal-based choreographer Jenny Shore Butler.  In addition to the original score from Steve Rashid, taped narration for the performance is provided by award-winning playwright, actor and director Tom Mula.
