RESEARCH STUDY: Understanding the Impact of Live Theatre on Literacy
Enchantment Theatre Company is thrilled to announce a partnership with Purdue University to administer a potentially field-defining research project, and YOU are invited to participate! Purdue Convocations has developed a study examining the impact of live performance on the literacy skills of our young patrons. This research, based on a smaller study discussed here, will include students who attend school matinees of My Father’s Dragon and complete a comprehension assessment. If you are interested in participating in this study, every child in your class will receive a FREE copy of the book. For more information, please email
