Students at a Woonsocket art school are earning their spot at a prestigious festival.

One of the shows put on by students at “Beacon Charter High School for the Arts” has been selected to represent Rhode Island at this year’s “International Thespian Festival”.

Twenty students will fly to the University of Nebraska for the festival later this month for workshops and to perform their showcase.
