Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

This project will make the arts accessible to all north Cass County residents and summer visitors. The audience participation numbers in these performances will present a measurable guide to the success of these productions. Celebrating our fifth year as a producing theater we have staff and volunteers that make this season achievable. With a rigorous schedule replicating past successes we are capable of timely and quality productions.Evaluation methods: We will do random surveys and fill out an evaluation form. We will provide evaluation forms to the audience the evening of the play and count the attendance. Our board will review the attendance numbers, audience appreciation and evaluation forms.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Successful series of theatre events that attracted an increase in audience participation over previous year. Majority of participants indicated a positive experience.
