The Loft Stage at East Ridge, a 938 seat state of the art facility, is home to East Ridge High School Band, Orchestra, Choir and Theater as well as the primary
venue for Woodbury Community Theater, East Metro Symphony Orchestra and many of our community's best fine arts events. If you have not yet visited
the Loft, check out The Crucible, coming this spring to The Loft Stage!
A Royal Run-in
Maggie Eckberg (’17) and Quintin Walker (’17) had a few minutes with Broadway royalty last weekend after attending the Bernadette Peters concert in Minneapolis. Quintin played Jack in Into the Woods this fall while Maggie played the Witch, the role Ms. Peters originated in 1986 on Broadway.
Spotlight Workshop at Park High School
Park High School is hosting a masterclass and we are invited! Minneapolis Musical Theatre will have a rehearsal at PHS on Tuesday, March 31st at 7:00pm for their upcoming production of Happy Days. Students will watch the first hour of rehearsal prior to a Q and A with MMT’s Artistic Director. Students can RSVP by sending their name in reference to the PHS Workshop to Sarah.Paquin@HennepinTheatreTrust.org.
Going to the Theater!
We have secured tickets for students to see two great theater opportunities in the next few weeks.
The Debutante’s Ball-Saturday, March 28th at 8:00pm at the History Theatre and
Dirty Rotten Scoundrels- Friday, April 3rd (no school) at 1:30pm at the Old Log Theatre
These are inexpensive theater opportunities for students but our turnaround time is short. We need to have payment (made out to the Loft Stage) and permission slips made out by Tuesday, March 24th.
