Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Participants and audience members will experience theatrical forms, aesthetics, and learning opportunities that expand their knowledge and world view. Audience surveys collecting experience info; targeted community outreach for feedback; internal and external artistic assessment. 2: Minnesotans from diverse cultural, socioeconomic, and geographic backgrounds will participate in relevant, accessible arts experiences through CTC. Audience surveys collecting demographic and experience info; targeted community outreach for feedback; analysis of first-time participants and return participant behavior.

Measurable Outcome(s)

CTC's 2017-18 season included two world premieres, one US premiere, and a first-time partnership with Penumbra Theatre on a co-production of The Wiz. CTC used participation counts and implemented audience surveys to measure engagement in artistic programs. CTC conducted formal assessments of education programs in the schools. 2: Demand for CTC's ACT Pass program for low-income families continues to grow; we now dedicate 5% of total ticket inventory for $5 (or free) tickets. CTC's Audience Services department has streamlined the marketing, management, and tracking of the ACT Pass program, as well as improving the enrollment process for community members.
