Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Our style of performance allows for 10 year olds to sit beside college professors with equal curiosity about a play or a discussion topic in our literature classes. We provide both entertainment and enlightenment, something for everyone in the family.We judge our success on the responses we get. We listen to comments made by audience and cast members.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Taking Shakespeare on tour enabled us to bring a new arts experience to communities in the region. Our gypsy wagon and interactive musical performance removed barriers to participation in the arts. People of all ages were dancing, laughing and highly engaged in our performances.
