ACHF Arts Education
The goal of the Summer Recreation Children's Musical Theater program is to increase the number of students participating in artistic endeavors, such as theater, and enjoy them as life-long endeavors. We have had very small children's theater productions in the past, but nothing of this scale. We will compare the number of students auditioning between the previous summers and this summer. We will also note the number of children that are having repeat theater experiences between the acting classes held the winter of 2015-16 and the children auditioning for Children's Musical Theater this summer. We will measure the achievement of this program with attendance at daily practices, which will tell us if the children are truly interested and enjoying the acting process. We will also use ticket sales and attendance counts to measure the success of the program. Students will be given a self-assessment rubric at the beginning and the end of the project. We will compare how they feel about their progress and growth in their theater experience.
We evaluated the students who participated in this project with two surveys of the students using beginning and end of play rubrics. The rubrics showed that the participating students were more confident in memorizing speaking parts and performing, but less confident in learning the dances.
