Evaluation Lessons from a Theatre Company
Walser, Tamara M.; Bridges, Keith; Mattingly, Kate
Journal of MultiDisciplinary Evaluation, v5 n10 p67-70 2008
Charter Theatre is a small professional theatre in Washington, DC. Its mission is to develop and produce new plays. Like other organizations, Charter Theatre wants to be accountable. Its members saw early the need for evaluation--a repeatable process to assure the quality of their work, and have infused their development process with evaluation. Their evaluation approach most closely resembles developmental evaluation. This article presents a documentation of Charter Theatre's development and evaluation process based on interviews and written communication with Charter Theatre's Artistic Director, and written notes from observations of the process. The process includes Level 1 Reading, Level 2 Reading, and Rehearsal.
