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 experiential data; 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 experiential data; targeted community outreach for feedback; analysis of first-time participants and return participant behavior.

Measurable Outcome(s)

CTC's 2018-19 season included four world premieres, one Minnesota premiere, an international presentation, and a show specifically designed for preschoolers. 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: CTC now dedicates up to 6% of total ticket inventory for $5 (or free) tickets through the ACT Pass program for low-income families. Relevance was demonstrated by this written response from an audience member at the premiere of 'I Come from Arizona,' a drama about an undocumented family from Mexico fighting to stay in the US: 'Buen Trabajo. Me trajo muchas memories. Felicidades!'.
