Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this program, youth and adults who participate as performers and technicians will increase their knowledge, skills, attitudes, and awareness of theater as a performing art through direct hands on participation. As a result of this program, participants will be mentored by theater professionals to produce a high caliber product adding to a vibrant arts community in Bemidji. Using their "stage families" as the basis of their involvement, participants will be asked to summarize their experience

Measurable Outcome(s)

Cast and crew reported having fun while learning new techniques and making friends. Their final evaluations included poems, songs, and skits. See uploads. Many of the new skills involved how to adjust movement components when restrained by costumes, but also included how to stay in character and how to work with a large group of individuals. Every performance, including school matinees, were sold out. Many audience members came from great distances; compliments were effusive and abundant.
