Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this project Malung community and surrounding area will respond emotionally and artistically to a play that comes directly from the heritage of the community. Evaluation will occur through follow-up meetings with planners counting audience members written evaluations by participants and audience members which focus on theater skills and response to the performance

Measurable Outcome(s)

We estimated 250 people would attend, and we had 475 in attendance during all 3 performances! Narrative surveys showed 99% positive comments. Only one of the casts had acting experience in the last 20 years. All of the cast members are looking forward to participating in another play. Enjoyable event for everyone in attendance.
