Performers and technicians will increase their knowledge, skill, attitudes, and awareness of theater as a performing art. The Bemidji community and surrounding area will be enriched through the opportunity to observe live theater. Audience numbers will rise. Performer and technician demographics will be tracked according to age demographics, abilities, past participation. Participants will be surveyed to determine what skills they have learned and whether there have been changes in their attitude, awareness of the theater process, and desire to continue participating in musicals and plays. Targets include: 75% of respondents will show an increase in new knowledge, skills, attitudes, and awareness of theater, and 60% will participate in a future theatrical production. Attendance will show a 5% increase from previous shows.
