For the past 48 years, the Institute has collected attendance data from the outdoor drama industry. This year we are expanding this survey to include both members and non-members of the Institute in order to gather an even more robust data set. The survey can be downloaded and completed below as an Excel file (which will self-calculate), or a PDF file which can be manually completed. Completed surveys should be emailed to our office at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.
Survey results are presented at the annual conferences of the IOD, Shakespeare Theatre Association and other forums as well as being published on this website under “Publications.” We strongly encourage all outdoor theatres to participate in order to make the data as meaningful and useful to our industry as possible. Last year’s summary report can be viewed below.
