Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this project, students will have the opportunity to perform theater and build up their confidence to perform in front of others. Evaluation will occur through a follow-up meeting with project planners, notes related to personal observation, and audience, artist, and youth numbers at the performance. On the last day of workshop I will be giving participant questionnaire that asks about their development of theater skills, how they feel about performing in front of peers and community members, and how they felt about the week of workshop and performing on the stage and in a play.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Students that had never participated in lead roles or in a play setting participated in this theater camp and they were able to perform for the audience. We had very young students participate and they did a great job. They learned many skills during this camp from the beginning to the end. Students that are very shy were able to perform at the end of the week for a large audience. They overcame fears of performing.
