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.
