Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this program, children will gain knowledge of auditions and develop acting skills while engaging with other children. They will become aware of the importance of being committed to an outcome and working together to achieve that outcome. Their attitude about the arts and how it can impact future behaviors will be greatly enhanced during this time. Our evaluation method will be to create a survey for the children who participate as actors and their parents to complete at the end of the week. Questions will include: Is this your first time participating? How did you hear about this event? Would you want to participate again next year? What did you learn? Did you feel this was beneficial for your child? If so, in what way? How would you rate the Prairie Fire Children's Theatre directors?
