Caleb Long, the music teacher and choir director for the Carrier Mills-Stonefort school district, took 10 students to Theater Fest in Champaign earlier this year. The students left on Jan. 10 and returned on Jan. 12.

The three-day festival takes place every year in January, with more than 4,000 students, teachers, university representatives, exhibitors, and volunteers coming together to put on over 25 different high school productions and over one hundred fifty workshops.

Also, they have college/university auditions for high school seniors, professional development for teachers, and the All-State Production, featuring student cast, crew, and orchestra members from across the state.
