Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

We are confident that this production will pique the interest of youth and adults to participate as performers and technicians allowing participants to increase their knowledge, skills, attitudes, and awareness of theater as a performing art through direct hands on participation. The rehearsal process involves discussion of acting and musical techniques as well as the practice of those techniques. The student technicians work side by side with their mentors to produce a high caliber product. Participants will be asked to complete a survey describing skills learned, attitude changes and whether they will participate in a theater production in the future. Attendance numbers will be compared to previous shows. We hope that at least 75% of those surveyed will report an increase in new knowledge, skills, attitudes and awareness of theater and that at least 60% will participate in a future theatrical production.
