Welcome to The Loft Stage

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.

FEBRUARY 3RD-4TH A Wilder Night of Theater

The Loft Stage proudly presents Thornton Wilder's Childhood and The Long Christmas Dinner. Childhood is a provocative, sometimes chilling comedy, where Wilder renders a child’s eye view of the grown-up world, as father, mother, and their three children play a revealing game of make-believe. The Long Christmas Dinner is a charming slice of American life covering 90 Christmas dinners with the Bayard family.
