Produced by the Illinois Theatre Association, the Illinois High School Theatre Festival (IHSTF) is the largest and oldest non-competitive high school theatre festival in the world.
The three-day Festival takes place every year in early January, and is located at the Illinois State University this year. Over 4,000 students, teachers, university representatives, exhibitors, and volunteers come together to put on over 25 different high school productions and over 150 workshops on every area of theatre - acting, dance, tech theatre, theatre education, improv, directing, stage management, and more.
Other highlights include 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 - this year, it is Aida.
