I have a target audience of 150 adults and 250 children. Through watching a “Puppets Ride Bikes” performance the audience will develop an appreciation for puppetry and want to attend a future performance, come away with a feeling of connection which inspires their day, and be awakened to their own curiosity and creativity. The positive impact of a live performance will be reflected in audience engagement. This will be measured through physical responses (laughing, clapping) and in the talkback after the show (showing interest, asking questions). I will observe and take notes. In addition I will have a YES and a NO box on my bike especially to engage the younger audience members. I will ask the question “Did puppet-art make you smile today?’ and hand out cardboard chips for them to drop in the box they choose. I expect 75% or better to be positive responses.
The total attendance numbers of Puppet Ride Bikes performances is estimated at 215 children and 250 adults. All responses gathered on the survey noted either a positive attitude toward puppetry, an increased interest in the art form, or a desire to participate in puppetry or attend more shows.
