ACHF Arts Access
Our goal with this project is to produce and present six quality performances of the musical White Christmas, to engage our community in this collaborative process, to encourage local actors, singers, and musicians to share their talents and give them a place to do that, to make it a pleasant learning experience for cast and support crew, to bring together the story, the music, the visual effects of lighting and stage, and the physical space to create an atmosphere that for the span of two hours will take the audience to another place and time, give them new thoughts to think, and a step outside of their usual daily life; to create a memory that is warm and wholesome. The numbers of people that we can engage in the project will be easy to count at the end. Our success in bringing the story to life we can usually tell from the smiles and positive reactions of the audience leaving the theatre. Also, our local paper will give us a review.
For a show, successful ticket sales is the most measurable outcome. People came and raved afterwards. The cast stated over and over that they were having a positive experience. In theatre, ticket sales plus positive experiences equals success. Our ticket sales significantly exceeded our expectations. We had budgeted based on $10,250 in ticket sales - we brought in $14,945.
