Dave Clarke, who has partnered with Ullyatt since 1987, is an award winning actor, composer and screenplay writer.


‘In listening to our Edmonton Eddies fans, we knew they wanted their Eddies to be more than just a recycled Calgary production, said Jim Button, Vice President, Marketing for Big Rock Brewery. ‘Our partnership with the Fringe is part of a greater effort to give the Edmonton Eddies its own unique personality,’ continued Button, ‘and as a regional qualifying event, the 2008 Edmonton Eddies can now stand on its own as a great Edmonton charity event.’
