The Loft Stage
Theater Patron Program

The Loft Stage at East Ridge High School has become known for its quality productions, from musicals like Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, to classics like You Can’t Take it With You. These productions would not be possible without YOU! Thank you for supporting live theater! Now there’s a new way for you to support theater arts at ERHS:

The Loft Stage Theater Patron Program will provide financial support to help students learn about theater arts, and to develop and showcase their talents, all while creating outstanding theater productions for all to enjoy. Funds are needed for scholarships, student travel, workshops, student recognition and participation in programs such as the International Thespian Society, the Hennepin Theatre Trust’s Spotlight program, and our community outreach initiatives.
