    Audition Information

    Students should complete the following steps before auditions:

    1. Fill out the audition form and conflict calendar (with parent signature) BEFORE auditions.
    2. Sign up on the Loft door for a vocal/acting audition during one of the following times:
      • Thursday, September 4 at 3:15 pm
      • Friday, September 5 at 3:15 pm
    3. Students can prepare a vocal audition piece of their choosing or sing a song from the show that the vocal director will select and teach to the whole group. Audition pieces should have an MP3 or CD accompaniment as there will be no accompanist present for auditions and should consist of at least 32 bars. Students can sing anything from their repertoire but are encouraged to sing something in the style of Into the Woods. A pop song is not recommended. Students are encouraged to sing the staff-selected piece if they have not prepared a song in advance (don’t throw it together last minute).
    4. Audition cuttings, including the vocal piece can be found below!

    The Lofties brought down the house on Sunday, June 8th at the Spotlight Showcase at the Orpheum Theatre in Minneapolis. Katherine Spicuzza, Naomi Ridley and Brendan Finn rocked the house as part of the Outstanding performances medley and Maggie Eckberg and Garrett Hildebrandt made us proud with the Honorable Mention winners.

    Our Outstanding Orchestra was well represented by Donovan Miller, Isabella Wurm, John Frieberg, Haley Martin and Emily Rau. Our final award of the evening came with the announcement that East Ridge was granted our fourth Community Engagement award!

    Naomi Ridley

    Naomi Ridley made us so proud with two nights of outstanding performances as she shined in the Triple Threat competition! What an incredible two nights of celebration for East Ridge and the Loft Stage!

    Aida passion was felt throughout the entire audience as every cast member left it on the stage.
