“Prints” will impact participants (cast and crew) by adding to their professional experience, in some cases offering new professional theater artists their first professional job. The community will be impacted significantly. Not only will the production of “Prints” offer a play that will reach out to audiences across the age spectrum, it also offers a look into an incident from Minnesota history inspiring a greater desire to learn more about Minnesota in the 1930’s. This production will draw first time theatergoers as well as seasoned theater audiences. In order to gauge our ability to reach outcomes we will utilize audience, cast and crew surveys. Surveys will be conducted through SurveyMonkey, making it easily accessible to both audience members, cast and crew. These surveys will be available opening night of the first show through the end of the summer season. This will allow audiences adequate time to go online and complete the quick survey. The cast and crew will also participate in a talk-back with the Artistic Director Zach Curtis and the Business Manager Tracy Klefsas to address how participating in this show contributed to their professional development and career.
Participants felt challenged by this show and gave our actors and technical artists the opportunity to incorporate video and projection details into the show. Artists very much appreciated that this was a professional production and that all principal players were paid for their performance. 22% of our audience did fall into the younger demographic we had targeted, but overall our audience numbers were smaller than expected.
