Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Youth ages 8-18 will increase their skills in theater, music and dance/movement performance by participating in this project. Participants will be assessed on their theater skills at the beginning of the camp. Students will be able to analyze and assess their own progress throughout the two weeks. They will also be asked to fill out a reflection assessment. These will be tabulated and shared with the artist/teachers and with the Lamplighter Community Theatre board.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Successful youth theater arts activity which resulted in increased awareness and skill levels of participants. Participation increased 15% over previous year.
