ACHF Arts Access
We will provide a high quality performance for audiences and participants. Our goals are to involve at least 25 community members directly with the production and develop their performance/theatrical skills to a higher level. We will provide an artistic and cultural experience for at least 210 audience members of all ages from the Dassel-Cokato area and surrounding communities. We will keep detailed records of those auditioning, ticket sales and volunteer names donated working on sets, decorating, programs and ushering. We will use that information and compare it to the same information collected during last two winter’s productions.
2016 Southwest Minnesota Arts Council Grant Evaluation Tool of Participation Levels, compared to The Foreigner (2014), The Romancers (2015) and Plain Hearts (2016): Number Auditioning: 2014 - 10, 2015 - 18, 2016 - 20; Number of Volunteers: 2014 - 7, 2015 - 10, 2016 - 16; Audience Numbers: 2014 - 324, 2015 - 374, 2016 - 377. These increases in participation over the past three years tell us we have been very successful at casting, producing and marketing our theatre productions, even with a new director this year! The program is growing and we are adding to our director, actor, musician, crew and very importantly, to our audience bases. Success!!
