Do you value the cultural and educational benefits of theatre arts?  Do you attend shows at the Loft Stage and delight in the students’ hard work, energy, and talent?  Then consider being a Loft Stage patron.

The mission of the Loft Stage Theater Patron Program is to grow and sustain a high quality theater program at East Ridge High School.  Financial support through patronage makes it possible to offer a top-notch theater experience for audiences in the Loft Stage’s state-of-the art setting, while championing theatre arts education and showcasing student talent.  Funds are needed for creating and expanding opportunities for theater students, such as scholarship, student travel, workshops, and student recognition. We support Loft Stage participation in highly regarded theatre programs, including the International Thespian Society; the Hennepin Theatre Trust’s Spotlight program; and Community Outreach initiatives.  We hope to continue these opportunities and extend them to more students at a lower cost.

Support levels:

Friends: $25-$99

Advocates: $100-$249

Donors: $250-$499

Benefactors: $500-$999

Angels: $1000+

All Patrons will be recognized in Theater Playbills going forward from their first time of support.  Support is cumulative from year to year, so Patrons who start at the Friend Level, for example, can change to Advocate level once their total support reaches the $100 mark.  In addition, all patrons at the Benefactor and Angel level will be invited to an end-of-year dinner, our treat, to thank them for their support.
