Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of our program, our school-aged participants will gain confidence, new skills, new friends, a sense of belonging, and a strengthened desire to perform, share, learn and experience theater and other related areas of the performing arts. Evaluation will occur through a follow-up meeting with project planners, counting actual audience members in each community, and a youth participant questionnaire given on the last day of our residency that asks about their development of theater skills.
