Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

To offer area residents the opportunity to demonstrate and expand their artistic and technical skills in the performing arts arena. Madhatters Community Theatre will increase its audience attendance by 2% (an adult increase from 388 to 397 and children's attendance remaining at 23) and also maintain audience levels with fewer performances. We will carefully record ticket sales and audience attendance using all available tools. We will use records from previous Madhatters productions, and compare the differences in all past measurements to determine if we have met our strategic goals.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Successful community theater production. Participants indicated a positive impact. Audience numbers remained constant form previous performance.
