Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Our measurable will be related to providing access to participation in the arts for more Minnesotans. We are able to measure, via WizTix, how many new ticket buyers come on during this season. We will also track the number of new volunteers are involved onstage and backstage. We will do data collection through various means: online, ticket sales, interviews with new participants.

Measurable Outcome(s)

We had anticipated more people buying tickets online when the number actually decreased from the previous season.
