Movement, Masks, Magic & Music!
Movement & Dance… the body says what words cannot
Masks & Puppetry…open our imagination for playing in creative worlds
Magic…fills our minds with wonder and awe
Music…It speaks directly to our hearts
For more than 35 years, Enchantment Theatre Company has been guided by our mission: to create original theater for young audiences and families. We accomplish this through the imaginative telling of new and classic fables, myths and legends set to classical or original music that inspire, challenge and enrich our audience – onstage, in the classroom and in the community.
Why do we do, what we do?
Enchantment deeply believes in the transformative power of theater and that all children should have a chance to experience the joy and wonder of live theater. Our unique style of performance – incorporating expressive masks, life-sized puppets, magical illusion, music, movement and pantomime – is accessible to all children and encourages everyone – regardless of age and language barriers – to explore creative worlds, awaken imaginations and engage with others in the joy of a live theatrical production. Perhaps one of our patrons said it best when they attended Aladdin and Other Enchanting Tales in Philadelphia:
It was so nice to be able to share these stories with my children in a way that fired up their imaginations and made them think, instead of pre-digesting it as the movies do. Well done!! The dress-up [trunk] was also really fun for them and allowed them to keep thinking about it and discussing it after.
