Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

To enable the theater space to serve as an indoor, year-round venue for a wide range of performing arts possibilities. We would like be able to offer similar programming to our Music in the Park summer series during the late fall, winter, and early spring months. We also know of other groups within the community which would be interested in renting the space for their events, which would also further the goals of the Arts Council. The success of the implementation of the equipment will be measured by whether or not people attend the events held in the space using the equipment. This requested equipment will result in the utilization of a space for this purpose not utilized as such before.

Measurable Outcome(s)

The space is now usable for performing arts without the need for the artists to provide all sound and lighting equipment.
