20 Years Of Inspired Learning
Enrichment Works founder, Abraham Tetenbaum, saw the need for dramatic improvement in education when his son started public school in Los Angeles. Tetenbaum, a writer with Broadway and television credits, asked friends to join him in creating “theater to inspire learning”and in 1999 Enrichment Works was incorporated as a nonprofit organization. The organization has now produced over 65 plays and musicals. These shows have been performed at over 500 schools and reached over 600,000 youth. All this in service of the mission “to create and present professional theater to inspire learning.”
As Enrichment Works’ circle of playwrights and performers has grown wider, a more interactive and culturally responsive style has taken shape. In addition to schools and plays addressing the content standards, the organization has partnered with libraries, museums, and community groups promoting tolerance, gun safety, healthy nutrition, animal welfare and financial literacy.
