Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this project, elementary students will feel excited to continue to participate in theater and other activities and will carry this experience on to junior and senior high level theater productions. Evaluation will occur through follow-up meeting with theater staff, written post evaluation, head count of actual audience members, and input from participants the following week after the final performance that asks about their theater experience and if they intend to partake in a similar activity next year.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Hundreds of students participated or watched the performance. We hope that more student will partake in the event next year from this experience. The community members that attended the performances enjoyed an opportunity to view an artistic performance performed by young students and a chance to see them in a different role that enhances their artistic abilities. Students were surveyed and said they enjoyed with experience and will partake again.
