Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this project, children, youth and adults will have participated in new arts experiences and will have learned from expanded visual, literary and performing arts opportunities. Evaluation will occur through interviews prior to and after arts events, follow-up meetings and observation notes, audience numbers. We will also capture participants submit their impressions of their experiences.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Our winter production "It's A Wonderful Life" sold out for all performances. It also brought more artists as it included an orchestra in addition to the actors. In 2017, we added an additional evening to our Children's Summer Theater production with a full house for both. Positive verbal comments were received from audience members, our Facebook followers and post-event meetings with theater staff.
