Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

1. Present residency activities with all of the main stage performances during the season. 2. Expand student/youth attendance by promoting $10 student/youth ticket price to off-campus groups. 3. Increase participation from other regional universities by building relationships with faculty and staff and potentially collaborating on projects. Study participation rates, surveys, financial data.

Measurable Outcome(s)

1. We presented seven main stage performances and hosted twenty-four activities. We tracked participation and number of activities. 2. We experienced mixed results promoting the student/youth ticket price. We distributed flyers at schools, community education departments, and elsewhere; however, ticket data does not reflect significant growth. Performances that included residency activities in local schools did see increased youth ticket sales. 3. We were able to increase regional university participation with Project Trio engagement and an activity hosted at Saint Cloud State University that built audiences for a performance. We tracked participation in the residency and student attendance at the performance.
