Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this program our actors will learn various acting and production skills which they are able to use to present a good show. These students learn new skills and broaden their knowledge of the theatre. As a result of this program our community sees what can be accomplished by our youth in theatre and the skills they have learned. The community members are able to attend and enjoy a quality theatre production. We would like to do a survey of participants looking for acting and production skills they have learned as well as knowledge of theatre. We will also plan to do a brief audience survey of any willing attendees, asking them to share skills they have seen the actors using and the level of their enjoyment of the performance.

Measurable Outcome(s)

We met our goals of providing artistic opportunities for our youth and providing a theatre experience for our community. The actors learned several acting skills and the community enjoyed a theatre experience. We did a survey of the participants, about they learned. We asked the audience members to complete a short survey also. Surveys and results are shared in the upload. The results showed the actors learned several skills and the audience loved the performance.
