BareBones Productions will staff a community theater-style cast and crew of approximately 350 people for our project, including about 15% (53) contractors and 85% (298) volunteers, to produce five performances for a total audience of about 7,350. About 70% (245) of the cast and crew will be in artistic roles and 30% (105) in non-artistic roles. Project staff will track volunteer numbers by category, count the audience nightly, administer an electronic evaluation questionnaire to contractors in November (excluding EMTs and police), and gather post-performance audience feedback using a SurveyMonkey.com tool for volunteer respondents accessed via links printed in our program and posted on our website and to our Facebook account. The board of directors will host a facilitated feedback process for contractors and volunteers at BareBones Productions' annual meeting in November about three weeks after the last performance, and personally debrief the production manager and artistic co-directors in December.
We had 267 total artists (75% of cast and crew) including 29 contractors and 238 volunteers who worked in various visual and/or performing arts roles. Volunteer artists included 138 visual artists (“builders”) and 107 performing artists (18 musicians, 89 stage performers), many who did both, including 20 children (aged <12), five of whom performed, and 13 youth (aged 13-18), 6 of whom performed.
