We are a space for creativity. 


The Loft is an interdisciplinary space, a home for actors and musicians; for visual artists; for the professional artist and the novice alike. It is a place to train, a place to rehearse, a place to present, a place to gather, a place for Ward 4 and the arts community to call home.
