Story by Melinda Rizzo focuses on the seventh season of the Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival's Linny Fowler WillPower Tour, the festival's educational outreach program. The intensive one-day program features workshops with professional actors who take Shakespeare into the classroom and an 80-minute performance of the eatured play, followed by a question-and-answer session with the actors. Patrick Mulcahy, the festival's producing artistic director, is quoted in the article. According to Mulcahy, the featured play, "Hamlet," is an excellent choice for students as the main character struggles with many themes still relevant in modern times. "We want to get to kids who might not have the means, or the ability to see professional theater, such as those in the inner cities, as well as those in more rural areas. We offer reduced rates, and pro bono workshops for schools with financial need," said Mulcahy.
