    What I Did over Summer Vacation: Loftie Edition

    THIS SUMMER, LOFTIES PAST AND PRESENT unleashed their ERHS-honed theater prowess on local productions, including WCT’s Les Miserables and Tartan’s Addams Family.  From student directing to house managing, from set designing to scene stealing, Loft Stage students and alums sure know how to bring down the house.  Way to represent, Lofties!  Check out the familiar faces below (Les Mis cast members Ben Gotz, Mark May, Tony May and Garrett Hildebrandt; Grace Ramey surrounded by Loftie pals after an Addams Family show; Joe Johnson gets creative for WCT; Pari Cariaga gets some love after Les Mis; Katherine Spicuzza prepares to bite it onstage–again; Josh Hoehne and Alex Berger, behind-the-scenes wizards for Les Mis)
