Art Project Grant
ACHF Arts Access
Drawing people from the community and beyond into the theatre who have not previously participated in a live professional performance. We would also like to have a positive financial outcome from the event so we can continue to offer high quality events to our community.We will incorporate into the program recognition for people who are attending a live performance for the first time. We will also use ticket sales as a measure of the success of this program.
1) We realized a profit of $3,168, after expenses and grants. 2) There was a double encore request at the end of the performance. 3) The entire lobby area was jammed with people walking around during intermission and spilling over into the theater entrance area. The band sold out of several of their promotional merchandise items. People stayed around after the concert for almost an hour, complicating theater clean-up efforts. 4) Each board member working interviewed at least 2 audience members using the questions in our audience evaluation. We learned that the performance exceeded expectations. Most audience members had previously attended other events at the Palace. People were asked how they heard of the event, with identification of our 5 mediums, radio, newspaper, posters, Facebook and Word of Mouth. Most people identified 3 of these sources, with the selections being just about equally divided. Everyone queried reported planning to return to another event at the Palace. The age distribution of the audience was on the older range of the distribution. We were able to query 1 student, 3 young adults, 10 middle age, and 15 seniors.
