Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Whether a script is new or familiar, the Rep strives to introduce new insights to challenge our artists, and engage audiences in our unique venue. Open invitations to area actors and directors to participate each season advance artistic opportunity. Discussion groups that follow performances of some of our plays lend insight into production strengths, weaknesses, and overall audience response. Attendance figures are maintained for all Rep productions and are used in planning the upcoming season.

Measurable Outcome(s)

This outcome will truly be realized in December 2015 in our call for directors for our 33rd season. Directors will be encouraged to submit shows with complex artistic and special sound effects.
