Art Project Grant
ACHF Arts Access
Our goal is to produce a very high-quality production for the entire community to enjoy and take pride in. Also this year, in efforts to increase both our actor and audience bases, it is our goal to increase participation in community theatre both in terms of audience size and the number of people participating in the production itself. Our specific goals are to increase the number of people auditioning for our winter production by at least 20% (over last year's audition number of 9), the number of people helping behind the scenes by at least 20% (over last year's 5) and our audiences by at least 10% over last year. Community members will enjoy quality and affordable theatre right in their own backyard. This project will provide a forum for expression of local theatrical talents that is otherwise unavailable. Those participating in the production will develop a sense of pride for a job well done, those attending a performance will enjoy high quality entertainment at a low cost and those coming to our community will spend money on food, gas, etc.Number of people auditioning, number of people helping behind the scenes, and number of audience members, evaluations from those participating, comments from those attending performances and written reviews in the newspaper will help us evaluate the success of that goal.
This project provided the opportunity for 14 adults in our community to participate in the cast, three of which were first time performers in our productions, including a recently retired local minister! We are constantly trying to increase both our actor
