Enchantment Theatre Company’s mission is to inspire children to dream, explore, think and connect through imaginative storytelling onstage and in the classroom.
We bring stories to life in a way that encourages children to dream about who they are and may become, to explore story from different perspectives, to think using inductive reasoning and to connect to other people and ideas. Our programs encourage children to question and explore how to live in a complex world so that they grow up healthier, smarter and kinder.
Enchantment Theatre Company aspires to transform young audiences into creative, curious and compassionate adults.
We Believe That
- Theatre has the power to illuminate, transform and heal.
- Experiencing theatre is essential for children to thrive.
- We have a responsibility to nurture, honor and respect the imagination of our audience.
- Fables, fairy tales and myths stimulate intuitive thinking and encourage the possibility of mystery and magic in our lives.
- Theatre can create community by bringing together a diverse audience encompassing all ages and backgrounds.
- We have a responsibility to reach out to children and families who may not otherwise have access to the unique kind of artistic and educational experiences that we provide.
- How we work with one another matters.
- Creating a working environment that encourages collaboration and creativity enables artists and staff to be fully self-expressive.
- Including younger performers and staff in our ensemble keeps our work vital and ensures its continuity.
