Tickets are on sale now for the fall theater performances at East Ridge, Park and Woodbury high schools.

East Ridge High School’s fall musical, Les Miserables, is based upon the French classic by Victor Hugo. It chronicles the life and trials of Jean Valjean, a peasant turned criminal on a path toward redemption. Set during the French Revolution, characters face an uncertain future personally, romantically and politically. Performances are set for Friday, Nov. 9 at 7:30 p.m.; Saturday, Nov. 10 at 7 p.m.; Sunday, Nov. 11 at 2 p.m.; Friday, Nov. 16 at 7 p.m.; Saturday, Nov. 17 at 7 p.m.; and Sunday, Nov. 18 at 2 p.m. Tickets cost $8 for a child/student/senior or $10 for an adult and can be purchased here.

The Loft Stage Boosters will be holding their annual Opening Night Gala at 6:00 p.m. before the performance on Friday, Nov. 9. Tickets for the gala cost $10 and can be purchased here.

Park High School’s fall play, The Importance of Being Earnest, is an iconic comedy full of twists and turns, and witty remarks. Set in Edwardian Era England, John Worthington proclaims his love for the charming Gwendolen Fairfax. A happy ending doesn’t come as easily as he’d hoped, as he’s left to face Gwendolen’s stern mother, deceitful characters and cucumber sandwiches… or the lack thereof. Performances are set for Thursday, Nov. 1 at 7 p.m.; Friday, Nov. 2 at 7 p.m.; Saturday, Nov. 3 at 7 p.m.; and Sunday, Nov. 4 at 2 p.m. Tickets cost $4 for a child/student/senior or $6 for an adult and can be purchased here.

Woodbury High School’s fall play, Once Upon a Mattress, is based on the children’s story of the Princess and the Pea. Set in a kingdom ruled by a tyrannical queen and a mute king. In this kingdom, no one can marry until the prince does and the queen is making that very difficult. Everyone is anxious and losing hope until a real princess appears and she is not at all what they expected. Performances are set for Friday, Nov. 2 at 7 p.m.; Saturday, Nov. 3 at 7 p.m.; Sunday, Nov. 4 at 2 p.m.; Thursday, Nov. 8 at 7 p.m.; Friday, Nov. 9 at 7 p.m.; and Saturday, Nov. 10 at 7 p.m. Tickets cost $8 for a child/student/senior or $10 for an adult and can be purchased here.
