Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Great River Arts will produce 6 theater performances of Lafferty's Wake in our theater, involving at least 12 local artists. Great River Arts will increase attendance from 372 (attendance from spring 2016) to 450. An increase of 21%. Great River Arts will engage the community by involving them in the different aspects of the production. Auditions will be advertised and held to cast the show. The number of performances will be scheduled and advertised, documented and analyzed to direct us as we grow our theater program. It is our goal to have six shows, which allows us to increase attendance. We will track ticket sales and the attendance numbers will reflect the interest and impact on the community. We will photograph the cast both at rehearsals as well as a few performances.
