Description

Our Performing Arts Education Program offers seasonal productions for students of all ages and skill levels. Students register for select classes that prepare them for particular performances throughout the season. The purpose of our classes is to provide a balanced program that guides students through the fundamentals and into more advanced theatre arts processes. In the end, the theatre experience is one of fun, friendships and growth. Each student has the opportunity to perform at their level. This year our high school program will perform three productionsand our middle school programs will perform two productions, and the elementary/preschool program one production. In addition to the school year productions StageDoor offers additional skill building workshops throughout the year and a full rage of summer workshops and summer production workshops as well.

Evidence of Program's Success

The average number of years a student participates in our program is 4 years. This is incredible considering all the activities a student can be involved in (band, various sports teams, work). Our students come back! Parents volunteer their time. People want to be part of something successful, and something that offers a quality product. StageDoor does that.

In terms of evaluating our over programming and services to the community, CSDT evaluates the effectiveness of programming qualitatively and quantitatively in a number of ways.

Quantitatively by monitoring the number the number of attendees to performances, the number of participants to workshops and classes, community interest, and volunteer participation. Overall attendance for 2018 was 7,023. 2017's attendance was also over 7,000. Many of our production classes fill up on the first day of registration. For the 2015-2016 season we added a Show Choir class. For 2016-2017 a One-Act production for High Students was added. Both of these continue to be very successful. And for 2017-2018 a Homeschool production class was added.And for the 2018-2019 we are adding Improv classes for Middle School and HS students.

At the education program level an open dialog with parents is encouraged. Parents are encouraged to contact directors with questions or concerns about their child's participation in our program. Surveys are sent to students and parents as a follow-up to each class or workshop as a means to evaluate experience and directors as well as solicit suggestions and other feedback. At the end of each season there is a parent feedback meeting with each company (elementary, middle, high school). Parents are invited to share information from their perspective and offer suggestions for the upcoming season. Our adult program uses surveys and questionnaires as a means to help determine audience interest: dramatic plays, musicals, and genre.

Analysis of social media data on sites such as Facebook is one way we measure impact. Overall-our social media presence has helped with a better understanding of our audience demographics, their buying and engagement habits with the theatre, and has allowed StageDoor to benchmark and see the growth of our patron base.
Since 2013 StageDoor has used Vending TicketAgent box office software to sell tickets and collect donations. The Vendini Event Manager is used to track attendance. The system has made tasks such as the Attendance/Admissions requirement of the SCFD Final Grant Report accurate and relatively easy. With Vendini surveys can be created and applied to any event. We've used questions such as "How did you hear about StageDoor?" and "What type of show would you like to see in ____" to collect data.

Overall attendance for 2018 was 7,023. 2017's attendance was also over 7,000. A goal has been to add a music component and in the summer of 2017 two well know regional bands, The Slingers, Dakota Blonde, and The Rocket 88's performed at StageDoor. In 2018 StageDoor repeated the summer offerings and added in December a holiday performance by Timothy P and the Rocky Mountain Stocking Stuffers.
