Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this program campers will have a part in either the theater production or behind the scenes. As another result of this program campers will learn or improve their musical, theater, design, and movement skills. As a result of this program campers will gain knowledge regarding how to successfully prepare for performance auditions. Theater staff will observe daily performances and the dress rehearsal to ensure all campers have a part either onstage or behind the scenes for their final performances. Campers will fill out a survey at the beginning and end of theater camp which will include questions as to what they currently know and what they learned in the program. Theater staff will also observe and review all auditions done by the advanced groups as well as provide feedback on how to successfully audition.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Every camper had a role in either a performance of behind the scenes. This was made sure by all of the theater teachers assigning roles/parts in the performances. A survey was done at the beginning of camp and at the end of camp. By using this survey, participants were able to explain what they already know about theater and what they learned at camp. Also during the audition portion of camp teachers were able to provide feedback as to how to improve or to help participants gain confidence.
