East Ridge staged to rock with 'Aida'
East Ridge High School will be rocking the Loft Stage next week.
East Ridge’s fall musical, “Aida,” opens Nov. 8.
The musical, written by Elton John and Tim Rice, is a story of forbidden love between the Egyptian soldier Radames and the beautiful Nubian princess Aida. Aida is captured and forced to be a slave to the pharaoh’s daughter, who is also in love with Radames.
“I love a good love story,” director Amanda Hestwood said. “I love how the show mirrors life.”
