Students will enjoy Holiday performances by some of the most notable, and unforgettable characters that Dickens ever penned.


School Days at the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire – September/October

For six day in the fall, students attend School Days at the Faire where they revisit the days of yore springing to life before their very eyes, participate in spirited competitions and frolic with Queen Elizabeth I, the nobility of her court, William Shakespeare, and the peasants and villagers of the 35-acre Tudor Village devoted to education and merriment during School Days at the Faire.


   To truly know a writer’s work, one must get to know the setting that inspired it or sheltered the writer during his creation of it. One of those places is Picturesque New England which fostered some of the finest writing in American letters from unique and powerful authors, including Hawthorne, Thoreau, Emerson, Melville, and Frost. Allow your students to be immersed in these places of inspiration with our New England Literary Tours.
