The Linny Fowler WillPower Tour is the centerpiece of the Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival's educational programming. The majority of the past eight tours were honored to be selected as part of Shakespeare in American Communities: Shakespeare for a New Generation, sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts in cooperation with Arts Midwest. Now in its 14th year, WillPower has served more than 110,000 students and has a well-established reputation for excellence.
