It’s not just the superb design work and eye-popping special effects that make Enchantment Theatre’s shows unique. Beautifully choreographed, the company’s movement-based productions effectively mix mime and dance into a stylized ballet of color and sound that entrances both the kids and their adult companions.
– Philadelphia Weekly
Each year Enchantment takes one of our major works on the road to reach school groups and families well beyond Philadelphia. Each of our North American tours generally covers 30-40 states, where audiences of 50,000 to 100,000 children see our shows. Venues include a great variety of performance spaces, from a huge tent in eastern North Carolina Festival to the Lincoln Center in New York and the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. The Company has also toured in Asia six times.
Enchantment also provides a unique in-front-of-the-orchestra theatrical experience that enlivens and enriches symphonic concerts for young people. Performing on the stage with orchestras helps us tell the story of the music and captivate the attention of young audiences. We have performed with more than 65 symphony orchestras nationwide and in Canada, including The Philadelphia Orchestra, The Cleveland Orchestra, The Seattle Symphony.
What a visually spectacular and magical performance! It was AMAZING!! The study guide was top notch (as are all ETC’s Study Guides) for preparing students to understand the subject matter, and theatrical elements, as well as how and why Enchantment adapted these tales in the way they did.
