One or two high school students will participate as tech crew (light and sound and video recording) and will report that they learned something new about off-stage theater activities and would be interested in doing it again.Each participant will be asked to complete a survey.

Measurable Outcome(s)

44 youth participated as actors. 27 surveys were completed. Of those, 26 reported enjoying the activity and interested in participating again. The tech crew member reported not learning new skills, although she reported having enjoyed the experience.
