ede2, the second company of the Evanston Dance Ensemble, has devised an original dance production inspired by the popular children's game, Candy Land. The dancers will journey along the rainbow path with the Ginger Kids, slide through ice cream slopes with the Duke of Swirl, and explore Peanut Acres with Gramma Nutt.
