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.
