Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The quality of the theater arts organization in Warroad increases which allows the public perception of this rural theater company to increase.Count the number of website hits, number of phone calls, number of auditions and attendance for 2012 season, storage and facility usage - space savings.

Measurable Outcome(s)

This summer we added a new venue for our spring play, Rocky Harbor Lodge. This went so well that we were invited to return with the play for a second run in the fall. This new venue and additional run added approximately 700 attendees.
