This year, the students will be housed at the Southbridge Hotel and Conference Center located in Southbridge, MA, 10 miles north of The Woodstock Academy. Some directors will also be staying at the host hotel as well. We are looking for some directors to act as overnight chaperones for the students while in the hotel. If interested, please email Ray Churchill at or Amanda Richmond at room will be covered by the festival.
