Measurable Outcome(s)

The Guthrie Theater created transformative theater experiences through its artistic, education and community engagement programs. Staff evaluated programming through surveys, observation, team reflection, and data on attendance and participation in audience engagement activities. Other means of evaluation included critical reviews and press coverage. 2: Guthrie education programming helped students build empathy, connect better with others and made them more willing to try new things. Students and teachers were given summative surveys at the end of the school year that asked them to gauge the activity's effect.
