Enchantment’s Arts in Education Program works with Philadelphia area schools to bring artists to schools, integrate the arts into lesson plans, expose students to professional workshops and provide top-quality performances through our local touring program, Enchantment Everywhere.
We just left the [“Fisherman and the Flounder”] assembly… It was an EXCELLENT literary experience for my class. It was an absolutely amazing performance. The kids were 100% engaged! We need to have many more assemblies like this one! I wanted to express my thanks and appreciation for bringing the arts back into our school!

This is just one of many examples of how an Enchantment performance can engage students in learning and ignite their curiosity, creativity and love of the performing arts. Since arts education is increasingly absent from schools (particularly those in underserved neighborhoods), the programs that Enchantment provides are needed now more than ever.
How do we measure Enchantment’s impact? We measure it by looking at their faces literally light up with wonder and awe during the show, we measure it by how many hands pop-up at each talkback, we measure it when students seek out an actor after the show to tell them that they want to be like them – that they want to make people happy!
