Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The quality and types of arts learning opportunities in the state, and the organizations or venues that offer them increase through working with a theater workshop. Evaluation will occur through follow-up meeting with project planners, personal observation of activities, and attendance numbers.

Measurable Outcome(s)

It has been almost 10 years since our last children's theater and so for these 11 families it was a new experience in the arts. We exceeded our goal of 7 families participating. Parents were amazed at how the children learned the script and songs. Due to rain, many community members attended the play since it was an indoor activity!
