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 Merrill Arts Center and many of our community's best fine arts events. If you have not yet visited the Loft, check out The Drowsy Chaperone, coming to the Loft Stage this November!
NOVEMBER 1-10 The Drowsy Chaperone

In this Tony-award-winning musical farce, the unnamed protagonist (man in a chair) seeks solace from his blues by tuning in to his favorite, albeit fictional, musical, The Drowsy Chaperone. As his record playing fills his lonely apartment, so too does the musical itself! A show within a show, the story deals with love, mistaken identity, gangsters posing as pastry chefs, all wrapped up in a satirical bow. You won't want to miss this jazzy and hilarious show!
