ACHF Arts Education
1) Performance: Through participation in this project, participants will spend one week exploring and expanding both their music and theater skills through improvisation, team-building activities, and performing a musical. They will produce Disney's The Little Mermaid within one week's time. 2) Exposure: Participants will produce a musical that anyone in our community will be able to attend. We will have an audience of at least 50 per night. These audience members will be exposed the musical theater through this process. 3) Growth: We will inspire younger performers to be involved in the high school theater program and increase the number of students involved. We will create this lifelong learning opportunity for them and continue to maintain, support, and build our own organization while promoting and inspiring our local school's theater program. We will survey all participants at the conclusion of our week-long camp to gain an understanding of the value of their experience. Youth will be asked if they plan on continuing their theater experience. We will survey the audience to see if they enjoyed the performance and ask their opinion on what the next step" should be for their community theater in their town. We will track the size of the audience and compare with previous projects. We will also track the involvement of students in the local school's theater program. We will dialogue at the board meeting following the camp to gather survey results and talk about how we can expand, and be more effective in offering theater experiences for individuals in our community. We will look at what went well and what didn't go well."
Through survey results, we found that participants really enjoyed the camp. They thought that the time frame was just right - within one week they could commit to making this project successful. The audience really enjoyed the production and would like to see similar projects performed in the future.
