HARRISBURG, Ill. (AP) — A southern Illinois theater is offering to loan props to a high school band to replace handmade scenery stolen from the band’s trailer.
Harrisburg High School’s band trailer was recently stolen. While it was later found, the props it contained for the school’s production of “Seussical the Musical” were missing.
Those props valued at $10,000 or more were going to be used in the band’s invitational trip to the Illinois High School Theater Festival. That competition begins Jan. 11 at Illinois State University in Normal.
Harrisburg Police Chief David Morris says the theft remains under investigation.
