ACHS: State Theatre Festival
On January 14, Antioch’s production of “Puffs, or Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic and Magic,” gave two performances at the Illinois Theater Festival at the University of Illinois. We played to capacity crowds and received standing ovations after each performance, with audience members coming up to our actors with tears in their eyes and one student even giving them a piece of fan art. Our students also participated in two days of workshops and had the opportunity to watch student productions from schools around the state. The students grew from the performance and from these workshops. This is the first time we have been able to attend the festival in three years.
