Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Our total audience will average 60 paid admissions per performance, an increase of about 5% over last year's production. ten percent of audience members will attend a Columbia Heights Fine Arts Foundation production for the first time. Our audience count will be based on keeping a count of paid admissions. We plan to do an audience survey, which will include a question about whether the individual has previously attended a CHFAF show.
