Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Goal 1: Replace the stage by June 12, 2017 to present our 57th season of programming. Goal 2: Realize continued, sustained, and expanded performing arts programming. Goal 3: Provide a safe environment for all performers, crews, and Theatre L'Homme Dieu staff to present the Arts. 1. Our goal will be realized when construction is complete, the new stage is installed, finished and inspected, resulting in the ability to present the Arts. 2. Measurement will also include the ability to book future performances and broadening our programming to present a variety of art experiences, including but not limited to shows with dance, meeting the measurement of realizing the requests of our patrons.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Realization of the goals were met when the construction was complete, the new stage was installed, and artists presented their Art. -An estimated 70 adult artists + 7,000 audience members have been impacted by this Legacy Project so far.
