Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The Madhatters will engage at least 200 audience members in rollicking yet thought provoking performances featuring a local cable access cooking show. The Madhatters will bring this show to an underserved portion of our population that is unable to attend a regular performance due to physical or other limitations. We will conduct talk back sessions after several of the performances to encourage discussion of the main topics of the show as well as the actors' individual experiences. We will keep records of ticket sales and audience attendance including a breakdown of online sales, in advance sales, at the door sales, and children. We will conduct surveys of the audience to evaluate the effectiveness of the play. We will survey the audience at the facility, if they are able, and the administrator of the facility to ascertain the effectiveness and resident enjoyment of the performance. We will conduct a separate survey regarding the talk back discussions as well as a survey of the actors and crew to gauge their experiences.
