Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this program, people in our community will have a new awareness of how history and culture is woven into musical theater and film. Evaluation will occur through audience questionnaires and interviews that asks about their increased knowledge and understanding of how history and culture is woven into film and theater, notes related to personal observation, and a follow-up meeting with project planners.

Measurable Outcome(s)

We did the interviews and tried to get results from half of the audience participants. Virtually 100% of those interviewed after the "Migrasong" performance said their understanding of the importance of music in immigrants had increased significantly. The movie, Dr Lovoll's talk, and the book discussion all increased those interviews knowledge of reform from 1930's to late 1940's. "Ole and Lena's Wedding" play did not increase their knowledge of folk humor since it is already so common.
