Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The Rep continually reaches out to engage a broader community of artists and patrons. We strive to provide access to performances through outreach to community groups who are not able to access theater experiences by invitations to attend preview performances without charge.The success of each play is evaluated on several levels: audience response, attendance figures, post production internal evaluations, and audience surveys.

Measurable Outcome(s)

The Rep anticipated a markedly positive impact on our capability of mounting our own summer productions and the involvement of both artists and audiences during the warmer months. The marketability of space used for other artistic endeavors has also increased many-fold.
