Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The play tells the story of a small group of men from our community who were at center stage in the most dramatic event in Minnesota history. Our goal is to learn about and remember these men.Pre-performance presentations to high schools and the public prior to performance, taking attendance and soliciting comments and questions. Post-performance surveys and a community meeting held a week later to talk about the play and the history.

Measurable Outcome(s)

We created from scratch, in a small town, a full length play with a big cast; and that play was attended by reasonably large audiences.
