As a result of this production, cast members will learn stagecraft techniques, enhance their musical skills, and acquire dance and movement proficiency. Along with crew and costumers, they will also learn of the history of the period and some major issues surrounding the era of women’s suffrage. As a result of this production, audiences will be entertained as well as educated about the Edwardian era in English history and the political issues of the time. Attendance numbers will be compared with past shows and a count kept of free tickets used. Cast and crew will be tracked according to their age, abilities, and past participation. They will be asked to creatively express themselves regarding the impact of the experience and the skills acquired, e.g. a story board, poster, poem, or film, using character “families” to assist in character development and cohesiveness. Documentation during the talk back will assess the effect on audience members.
