35-40 youth and adults will participate as actors and technicians in Peter Pan. 75% of the performers and technicians will report that they increased their knowledge, skills, attitudes, and awareness of theater, and 60% will report they will participate in a future theatrical production. Attendance numbers from Peter Pan will show a 5% increase (especially among children) compared to previous Bemidji Community Theater children’s shows, especially among children.The number of performers and technicians will be tracked according to age, demographics, relationships, abilities, past participation, etc. Participants will take part in a talk back circle that will allow them to verbally express their opinions regarding the event. Participants will be asked to complete a survey delineating how the experience affected them.
We were able to cast 42 actors ranging in age from 8-60 plus 15 support people in the production. There were 18 new youths and 6 new adults participating in this production. 95% of the cast and crew responded positively to the questions regarding increased knowledge and skills and the intention to participate in a future production. Peter Pan represented a 15% increase in attendance over our previous best-selling show with five of the six public performances sold out.
