Your year-round destination for student & youth programs—for groups of all sizes! For over 21 years, Mount Hope Estate and the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire have provided enriching, interactive, and fulfilling Student Programs for hundreds of thousands of students in the Northeast. Whether at School Days at the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire, Summer Youth Day at the Faire or through our Poe Evermore or Holidays at Mount Hope Theater in the Mansion programs, our main goal is to help with the growth and learning of the youth of today, the future of our tomorrow. We invite you to peruse our Student Programs and learn why getting your students involved will help invigorate, energize and promote their love for education, history, the earth, science and more!
Mount Hope's annual Theater in the Mansion season kicks off with Poe Evermore, a wonderfully crafted performance of some of Edgar Allan Poe's greatest works. Inside the imposing Mount Hope Mansion, visitors enter the world of Edgar Allan Poe, experiencing his tales recounted by those who have lived the stories, spinning tales of mystery, horror and suspense that guests to the Mansion will long remember!
Student performances of Poe Evermore are available on the dates highlighted on the calendar—hover over each performance date for times and availability. Each performance is approximately 2 hours in length with a capacity of 90.
The cost of Poe Evermore is $15.00 per student/extra chaperone. A $100 deposit is required for all shows and the balance is due 30 days before your selected performance date. Cancellation Policy: All payments refunded up to 30 days prior to reserved date.
