The Miscellaneous Rantings of Marie-Lizette
The Edgemar Center for the Arts (“ECA”) is were theater, dance, music, film, and visual arts come together in one place.
Founded by Michelle Danner and Larry Moss, ECA serves as collaborative rehearsal and performance space open to artists of all disciplines and experience levels. It encourages and nurtures the collaboration between writers, directors, actors, musicians, dancers, and visual artists of all ages and levels of experience to come together in an environment of learning. They invite the community to observe, engage, and interact, to add its voice to the creative process through classes and productions that include ticketed performances and educational outreach courses for children and senior citizens. As part of its outreach program, the ECA works with elementary through high school students, presenting a variety of artistic disciplines. Programs based on California's curriculum will teach students to harness their creativity and improve their reading, writing, critical thinking, and social skills.
In the time since ECA first opened, many wonderful and exciting events and programs have graced their stages and art gallery. The ECA credits its success is to the generosity of dedicated friends of the center; however, to continue its mission and fulfill its promise to nurture the next generation of artists while continuing to provide a beautiful home for established performers and visionaries, they need continuing support. The ECA is dependant on the dedication of its volunteers and mentors as well as the gifts and donations from its supporters.
