We would like the audiences of Hello, Dolly to enjoy the theater experience and want to repeat it, whether they are first time theater goers or loyal fans. We hope the experience may pique the interest of some to want to participate on some level. We hope 75% of the cast of Hello, Dolly will report an increase in knowledge, skills, attitudes, and awareness of theater as a performing art and that 60% will participate in a future theatrical production. We hope all 22 free tickets will be used. Cast and crew will be tracked according to age demographics, abilities, past participation etc. They will be given a survey and asked to answer these questions: How has this experience changed you? What new skills have you learned? Has your awareness of the theater process changed? If so, how? Will you consider being involved in another theater production? Why or why not? Attendance numbers will be compared with past shows, and a count will be kept of how many free tickets were used.
