Enrichment Works creates and presents professional theater to inspire learning.
Enrichment Works provides young people with what is often their first experience of a live theatrical performance and does so in a highly relevant and interactive form at schools, libraries, museums, and other community venues.
Enrichment Works creates theater pieces about topics that youth are learning about in school (mythology, history, fables) and topics that are relevant to young people (nutrition and health, financial literacy.) The organization integrates theater arts with these important subjects to help students connect emotionally to the topics they are required to learn.
“On behalf of our entire staff, I want to thank you and your talented storytellers for their wonderful renditions of ‘John and Juan’ and ‘Aesop’s Fables.’ I cannot adequately express our appreciation for this enriching experience. The name of your organization is quite fitting.”
