Celebrating the 5th Anniversary of its creation, Eclectic Edge Ensemble and Mad Munchkin Productions are proud to announce the return of Snow Bound! A Journey from Autumn to Spring.

Snow Bound! infuses puppetry and dance into a stunning portrait of our human experience of winter.  Local composers Warren Park, Nathaniel Kling, Brian Erickson and Richard Sloss provide all original music, creating the rich score that carries the beholder on the journey that is Snow Bound!. From the last autumn leaf falling from tree, across the plains of winter, to the first flower of spring bursting through the earth, our collective emotional and physical reactions to winter are interpreted through forms from the natural world as the performance sojourns through the winter night. A huge snow dragon ushers winter onto the stage bringing a mysterious snow globe that becomes the portal from one magical scene to the next. Puppets ranging from hibernating animals to night stars mingle with dancers as snowflakes and living snowdrifts to breath life and wonder into this enchanting ride through winter.
