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. If you have not yet visited the Loft, check out Wendy and Peter Pan, coming to the Loft Stage this May!
MAY 2ND-5TH Wendy & Peter Pan

Wendy & Peter Pan pays homage to the original J.M. Barrie Peter Pan but brings some of the characters and content into the 21st century. Many of the beloved characters like Peter, Wendy, Tinkerbell, and more are still there but with a modern twist. Beyond battling the ruthless Captain Hook, these characters grapple with what it truly means to be lost and how resiliency and courage can transcend both death and time.

Wendy & Peter Pan Cast List

Author By Administrator

Remember: The character you reveal when you see the cast list is far more important than the character you play in a production. Choose creation over destruction, always. ❤

Thank you to all of the amazing talent who auditioned! For those of you who did not make the cast, do not feel discouraged. There were so many talented students and so few roles to fill. Please don’t stop auditioning because you all have wonderful gifts to share with the East Ridge theatre program! If you are still interested in being involved in other areas of the production, please attend the tech meeting Friday at 4:00PM in the choir room.

Cast members! There will be a read through Thursday after school at 3:30PM in the black box theatre. Make sure to bring a notebook and pencil.

District 833 One Act Festival

Author By Carlson

Please join us this Friday at 7:00PM at Woodbury High School for the District 833 One Act Festival. The cost is $5 for general admission to see all three productions.

East Ridge’s one act play is She Kills Monsters young adventures edition, a play by Qui Nguyen. Our winter one act play is a contemporary work set in the walls of an average high school (1995 – Athens, Ohio and the imaginary land of New Landia); what’s not so average, is the journey these students embark. After the untimely death of her younger sister Tilly, Agnes has to face, both literally and figuratively, the ghosts of her past through the old avatars of her sister’s Dungeons and Dragons game. It’s only through these battles that Agnes is able to fully gain closure and learn who her sister really was.
