Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Our achievable goal is to provide this theatrical experience to as many children/teenagers as we can in our small rural area. Evaluation will occur through personal observation and interviews on the quality of the participants experience and their learning. Parents will be surveyed to determine the value of what it does for our children.

Measurable Outcome(s)

This is a valued annual event that is enjoyed by our younger community and the cost far outweighs the revenue. We appreciate any amount given to help provide arts in our small rural community.
