ACHF Arts Access
Serve over 200,000 children and families through productions on our stages, pedagogically-sound arts education, programs at the theater and in the community, and access opportunities ensuring that no one is barred from participation because they cannot afford to pay. Utilize participant surveys, focus groups, interviews, observations, and ticket sales.
The ChildrenÆs Theatre Company served 235,846 young people and families. We presented Mercy Watson to the Rescue, A Wrinkle in Time, The Wizard of Oz, Harold and the Purple Crayon, Lizzie Bright and the Buckminster Boy, and Pippi Longstocking. ChildrenÆs Theatre Company provided the nationally-recognized theater arts education program, Neighborhood Bridges, to 586 children in public schools throughout the Twin Cities. In the Theatre Arts Training program, 2,107 students from ages two to eighteen participated in classes, camps, and intensives in theatre arts-related disciplines. More than 30% of our audience came to a ChildrenÆs Theatre Company show through one of our access programs, which offer free or reduced-price tickets to productions for school groups, community organizations, and low-income families. ChildrenÆs Theatre Company evaluated its artistic programs through internal critiques with the artistic staff as well as through monitoring ticket sales. We engaged professional evaluators to assess several of our education and access programs.
