Ordway Anew

The Ordway Center for the Performing Arts in St. Paul, Minn., will debut a brand-new stage next month after a seven-week renovation project.

The 25-year-old stage floor had been re-sanded so many times, venue officials said the 4,500-square-foot area needed a complete overhaul.

The St. Paul Chamber Orchestra will christen the new floor in September followed by the national launch of “Little House on the Prairie: The Musical”
