The Missing Link: Edge Center For the Art Original Film


...they wanted to do something to keep the acting company involved and also to let our patrons know that we're still around and thinking of them and trying to connect. And then we did some brainstorming. Michaela and I ... we kind of came up with some basic ideas for the group to take and run with, and they said, you know, that's a good idea! Go right ahead! And we have just taken over the producer duties. - Val Conner

Covid shuttered venues across the land over the past year.  The Edge Center for the Arts came up with a creative way to engage their audiences.  The Missing Link is a farcical comedy mystery created by Val Conner and Michaela Raymond.  They spoke with us on the morning show about how they came up with the idea and what they love about performing.  

To view the movie yourself, visit the Edge Center for the Arts website.
