Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this program, 10% of our audiences will be new to our theater. Evaluation will occur through an audience questionnaire, notes related to personal observation and a follow up meeting with project planners.

Measurable Outcome(s)

We evaluated in part by polling (hands raised) our audiences each night about whether they had ever been to one of our shows before. A total of 71 people responded, which is 10.8 percent. This increase in new people may have been due to the nature of the show titles or increased usage of Facebook and Twitter to advertise. Individual reactions were very mixed; some loved the edginess, while others were offended by the content. That's art! Truly, lives were changed, and people were engaged.
