Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Bring together theatre "veterans and newbies" in the community and provide hands-on experiences in costume shop maintenance. Costume Shop Upgrade will enhance our wardrobe to better serve the expanded Litchfield community.Track ages, tasks, and comments from volunteers by conducting a written volunteer survey after the project is completed. Track number of volunteer hours and include learning experiences questions on the volunteer survey. Develop a check out and return system to track use of items.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Costumes and props are more accessable for local and regional productions. Another long-term benefit will come from our improved organization because it will reduce production of duplicating costumes and props that were difficult to find.
