Alaska's Premier Educational Touring Theatre Company
About Edgeware Productions
Edgeware Productions was founded in 1990
and has produced plays and educational
performances in its home state of Alaska,
throughout the contiguous United States and
in several European countries.  Productions
by the artists associated with Edgeware
Productions have received critical and
popular acclaim and many have won
regional awards for excellence.  The
educational productions have toured to
schools throughout Alaska, and Edgeware's
educational workshops have brought
Shakespeare and live theatre into remote
classrooms.  Managed by David Edgecombe
and Elizabeth Ware, this company has
proven to be a respected addition to the
Alaska performing arts community.
