Article by Geoff Gehman highlights award to the Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival at DeSales by the National Endowment for the Arts. The $25,000 NEA grant is the first in the festival's 14 years and is for the WillPower touring program, a fall partnership with regional schools that includes a study guide, workshops and performances of a Shakespearean play. Over four years, the program has reached more than 30,000 students. Patrick Mulcahy, the festival's producing artistic director, says the grant will strengthen WillPower in several ways. It will be able to hire a part-time tour manager and education director, travel to six more schools than last year, and have more guest artists. The festival opens June 8 with Moliere's "The Imaginary Invalid."
