Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this project, children and teens will have knowledge and confidence in their performing abilities and will desire to expand those skills to participate in future projects in our theater program. Evaluations will occur through meetings with the production team before, during and after the project, with the Thief River Falls Area Community Theater board after the project is finished, through interviews with audiences members, and through the numbers of kids in the program and audience numbers.
