Arts and Cultural Heritage Grant for Organizations
ACHF Arts Access
As the result of Northern Light Opera Company's presentation of SOUTH PACIFIC: over 2,100 people will enrich their lives by attending the production; 40-50 actor singers will experience artistic growth in singing, acting, and/or dancing through participation; 40 people will enrich their lives by making volunteer contributions toward creating sets, sewing costumes, making props, painting scenery, promotions, ticket sales, ushers and other ways volunteers are needed to make arts events happen. An audience survey indicating satisfaction with arts experience will be conducted. Comments will be collected. At the strike party" after the production, participants will express great satisfaction with being in the production. Volunteers will anecdotally report great pride in contributing to a successful arts experience. The Northern Light Opera Company Board will formally evaluate the success of the project at its first meeting following the production."
The surveys that were turned in after performance or mailed in later reflected the same enthusiastic appreciation that audience demonstrated after the performance and in the comments collected. At the strike and party after the final performance, cast and volunteers were volubly proud of what they had accomplished. A significant statistical outcome not expected - addresses used for purchasing tickets by check or credit card show that over 30% of audience traveled over 50 miles to attend.
