Loft Stage Team for Relay for Life

Author By Director

This year LoftPAC is starting a team for the South Washington County Relay for Life event! 

This team is for Bridget Olson, an aluma of our theatre program, and a cancer survivor. 

For those of you unfamiliar with Relay for Life, it’s an event that happens multiple times in various states and cities that raises money for the American Cancer Society. The event we’re participating in will be here at East Ridge High school on June 10th from 6pm to 6am. (Yes, it’s over night although it’s up to you on how long you’re able to stay.) There’s multiple teams participating, fundraising and donating to help find a cure to cancer. On the night of Relay, all of the teams have tents lining the track and have something to sell or do to raise money that night. Once we have assembled a team we can work together to come up with ideas for our teams fundraising! 🙂 When at relay when not at our tent, we will walk the track, attend opening and closing ceremonies, help light the luminary bags, and have a great time for a great cause. 

Here’s how to join our team: 

  • Go to the website  www.relayforlife.org 
  • Click on ‘find an event’
  • Search for Woodbury and then click ‘sign up’ under ‘Relay for Life South Washington County -Woodbury, MN’
  • You will have to create an account if you don’t already have one (this is super easy)
  • Then register under the team “Bridget’s Lofties”

It’s up to you on how much you want to fundraise/donate. As of now our team goal is set at $1,000 which is the suggested starting goal. This is subject to change as we start to develop our team.

I’d like to encourage you and your family members to join our relay team and participate in this event as its for such a wonderful cause that is very close to home for many of us.

Spring Play Auditions

Author By Director

Auditions for the Spring Play, Still Life With Iris, will be held on March 14-15 with callbacks on March 17.

Info on the play 

Students should plan to attend either March 14 or March 15 and stay until auditions are done.

You will be reading from the sides posted.   

 Actors will be expected to help in making/designing their own costume be prepared to spend time in the costume shop after rehearsals to work on your costume.  This may involve going as a group to thrift stores on a Saturday to pick out your coat and decorations. 

Rehearsals begin immediately Friday, March 18. 

Special skills—we are looking for 1 or 2 people who can do sound effects and will be part of the cast as workers in the land of Nocturno and Great Island. They will be on stage through out the show much like a pit band.  I would like to audition you for sound effects that you can make without any equipment(altho we may still use some).  These effects would be birds chirping, wind, crickets, etc.  Come with as many as you can make. 

Audition From (please complete prior to auditions)
