Engaging, enhancing, and inspiring learning

ENCHANTED CIRCLE THEATER is the regional leader in the field of arts integration, using theater arts as a dynamic teaching tool on the stage, in the classroom, and in the community.  We are a professional theater company, a teaching institution, and a community-based arts organization.

Enchanted Circle serves an essential need in education today by fostering creative and critical thinking for people of all ages and abilities. We engage the disengaged.  

We perform. We are a professional theater company. We create and perform original plays on historical, cultural and socially relevant themes designed to engage, educate, and capture the imagination of our audiences.

We teach students. In our artist-in-residence programs, students and teachers are immersed in the creative process of learning as they create and perform original works linked to their curriculum.

We train teachers. Our comprehensive professional development programs focus on integration of the arts into the teaching strategies and curricula of K-12 teachers. We expand the capacity of teachers to integrate the arts into virtually everything they teach as a means to engage all learners.
We collaborate in our community. ECT works in partnership with area social service agencies, integrating the arts with family literacy and life skills, and developing socially relevant theater with young people.

 "You bring the joy back into learning for all students!"
 ~Principal, Holyoke, MA

An excellent way to bring social studies to life. I wanted more, more, more!!
