Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Real or perceived barriers to arts participation and access are addressed through providing a variety of theatre shows that emphasize to our rural audiences the importance of ongoing theater. Evaluation will occur through participant questionnaires, personal observation of activities, follow up meeting with project planners, and attendance numbers.

Measurable Outcome(s)

We expanded our participant outreach to a 40-mile radius, drawing in young people who were excitedly involved in the arts. The number of adults involved in the background of our 2015 productions increased benefitting our base for our productions.
