The music director will work with actors/singers on improving skills in voice placement and projection. The professional stage director will train actors/singers to communicate audibly and enunciate clearly, help actors/singers improve their acting skills in character development and stage movement. The technical director will challenge and guide community volunteers to create sets and a theater space that will transport the audience to New York City streets. The participants on stage and behind the scenes will enjoy making contributions to the project and will find that the efforts they bring are important and satisfying. Northern Light Opera Company Board of Directors will hold a formal evaluation session within three weeks of production addressing: attendance, success in achieving artistic goals, front of house procedures, non-artistic matters that relate to a successful production, and recommendations for future productions. An audience exit survey, observation notes collected at the performance, feedback space on the NLOC Facebook site, and responses from notes, emails, and conversations will document audience and participant responses.

Actors and other participants were proud of their achievement and growth in this production, There was great vocal improvement for many of the young performers who were grateful to work with such a professional music director. Everyone was impressed with the technical director's use of chain link fence to build an artistic set that also felt like the streets of New York City.
