Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The Guthrie will produce, co-produce, and present at least 650 live performance events for the public on three stages during fiscal year 2015. Fully-mounted productions and concerts will be joined by showcases of University of Minnesota/Guthrie B.F.A. and Guthrie Experience (M.F.A.) students. All ticketed performances are tracked through Tessitura software. 2: The Guthrie will be accessible to all visitors with mobility, visual, and hearing impairments. 1,300 people will receive discounted Sensory Tours, American Sign Language interpretation, audio description and open captioning. Free use of wheelchairs, Braille materials and other services will continue.

The Guthrie offered 683 ticketed performances (productions, presentations and concerts), exceeding the goal of 650. Audience surveys and press coverage were used to evaluate artistic merit. All ticketed performances were tracked through Tessitura software. 2: 1,441 people with disabilities purchased discounted tickets for 61 accessible performances. Other access services were available for all performances. Access tickets purchased and accessible performances offered were tracked through Tessitura software.
