The Peninsula High School Drama Department has been selected once again by the American High School Theatre Festival (AHSTF) to be one of forty North American Educational Theatre representatives to perform at the 2022 Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

PENINSULA DRAMA will be presenting an original play, written by 11th grader Alison King, ROAD TO PARADISE

After winning two tickets to a new life, Hazel and Ivy are delighted to find themselves on the Road to Paradise. But when their new friends on the island discover firsthand that Paradise isn’t really what it seems, the group must try to unite the community and shut down the underground operation. From teenage playwright, Alison King, Road to Paradise follows a ragtag squad of teenagers who must battle betrayals, the corrupt government, and even each other to expose the administration and create a new Paradise.

The Peninsula High School Drama Department will be travelling to Edinburgh Scotland to participate in the world's largest arts festival! 
Any member of the Peninsula Drama Department in the 2021-22 school year will be eligible to take part in the once-in-a-lifetime experience! 
July 16, 2021 - Pricing, dates and registration information are now available. See below.
February 27, 2021 - There will be a parent/student information meeting via Zoom on April 22. Please check back here for links and info.
May, 2020 - With the uncertainty regarding International travel, we have made the difficult decision to defer our acceptance with AHSTF. For now our plan will be to participate in the 2022 Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
Students/Families will register online through the WorldStrides trip portal (link coming by early August). Through the signup portal, you will have access to make payments online, view updated trip information from myself and from AHSTF, access a sample itinerary and a lot of other information.
Deviations: If any travelers are planning to deviate from our itinerary (Travel separately and either meet us in London or separate from us in Edinburgh) you will be able to coordinate that from your individual portal.

There are three ways to pay.


1) Monthly Automated Payments: Pay your  deposit and optional travel protection plan costs with credit/debit card or checking account upon enrollment, and the balance of your Tour Fee will be automatically charged to your card or debited from your account in equal monthly installments until 35 days prior to your departure date (checking account) or 65 days prior to your departure date (credit/debit card). Please note that you must make all payments by credit card, debit card, or checking account. If two consecutive payments are returned NSF or declined by your bank or credit card company, we will change your account to the designated Manual Plan.

2) Pay in Full: Pay in full at the time of enrollment.

3) 4-Step Manual Payments
:  Pay your deposit and travel protection plan costs upon enrollment, $500 toward your Tour Fee 30 days later, and 75% of your remaining balance at 110 days prior to departure. The final remaining balance is due 65 days prior to departure and can be paid by check, credit or debit card, or checking account. If you enroll 150 days prior to departure or later, you will make only three payments – deposit and travel protection plan costs at enrollment, 75% of your remaining balance at 110 days prior to departure, and the final balance at 65 days prior to departure. Please note that we do not automatically deduct payments on this plan; you must make each payment manually.


Standard Cancellation Policy:  The services and value we provide begin long before your date of departure, and there are significant unrecoverable costs as your departure date approaches. Therefore, if you do not enroll in the Cancel for Any Reason Plan and you, the Program Leader, school, or school administration cancel beyond the 24-hour grace period, WorldStrides will be entitled to retain (in addition to the Non-Refundable Fees):

  • $399 non-refundable fee if more than 150 days
  • $599 non-refundable fee if between 150-110 days
  • 50% of all fees + $99 non-refundable fee if between 109-76 days
  • 75% of all fees + $99 non-refundable fee if between 75-31 days
  • 100% if 30 days or less
