Statistical analysis of ticket sales for Seussical the Musical and Annie will indicate an increase in audience awareness of and appreciation for musical theater for children in our region. Young theater artists from our region will benefit from participation in that they will grow as young actors and seek future opportunities to act in theater productions.Youth participants will participate in talking circles as well as fill out a paper survey which will ask them to comment on their growth as actors and their interest in continuing to act. The goal is for at least 60% positive feedback indicating growth as an actor and at least 50% will indicate a desire to continue to seek acting opportunities.
The Paul Bunyan Playhouse production of Annie was the most attended show of the 2014 season. Audiences demonstrated a great appreciation for this classic piece of children’s musical theater that they eagerly expressed in audience participation surveys. In surveys conducted via Survey Monkey, 100% of youth actors felt they’d grown as actors and actresses through participating, 54% said they would pursue action opportunities in the near future, and 81% said they would pursue theater education classes in school. Audience and actor responses strongly indicated that Annie was a success on all levels.
