Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The musical will be presented at STEM Academy, whose students are primarily Somali, a culture for whom theatre is a relatively unknown art form. We always endeavor to minimize geographical, physical and economic barriers for youth performers and audience members as much as possible by utilizing the parks around town. We offer classes at no charge and keep ticket prices low and freely offer complementary tickets.Audience and cast are encouraged to provide feedback. We also hold open meetings to discuss aspects of various shows and seasons. These gatherings provide an opportunity for the broader community to contribute to our company and productions.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Shakespeare in the Park brings theatre to the community, making it easily accessible and appealing. In addition, no admission fee is charged.
