Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Improve the quality of sound production and amplification in the DreamAcres barn significantly to address audibility and aesthetics for audience. Offer underwritten, sign-interpreted events to reach more of our target (local) audience. Surveys, data collection (tickets sold, heads in seats, financial returns), talk backs, photos and video-recordings of pre- and post-show gatherings, stories, local news coverage.

Measurable Outcome(s)

The sound system was improved with donated speakers from a board member. Quality was pleasing. Sign-interp was offered and appreciated-as noted in surveys.
