The company hopes a radio play version of Charles Dickens' classic "A Christas Carol" will engage audiences and spark imagination.
Follow Eagan Patch on Twitter | Like us on Facebook | Sign up for our daily newsletter| Blog for us During the golden age of radio, listeners clustered around their Zenith radios while their imaginations ran wild with the images depicted on air. It's a scene that enchants Eagan Theater Company member Ken Coy, who is directing the company's radio play rendition of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" in December. Performances will be held at 7 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 7 and Saturday, Dec. 8 at the Cedar Valley Center in Eagan. The holiday play—like any radio program aired in the 1930s and 1940s—relies less on visual flourishes and more on the audience's abillity to imagine and engage. That idea sits well with Coy, who wants the audience to meet…

City residents are engaged in several art-related projects, but local organizers say they lack performance and classroom space.
Eagan is home to a flourishing art community. In fact, many local arts organizations are expanding so rapidly that they’re outgrowing Eagan’s performance venues and classroom spaces. “It is critical that we have arts available in the community,” said Wanda Borman, director of the Eagan Art Festival. In 2011, approximately 6,800 people attended the festival, more than twice the roughly 3,200 people that attended eight years ago, according to Borman. The art festival isn’t the only arts organization on the rise. Programming participation at the Parks and Recreation Department’s Eagan Art House has increased by more than 30 percent in the past five years, said Julie Andersen, Art House recreation supervisor. Total attendance at Caponi Art …
