Abstract

They're interested in the performing arts; they read reviews; notice ads and have an idea of what attending a live show might be like...but they don't go. Why not? And how might we get them there? These are questions I set out to answer in both my doctoral thesis and in my current work as a researcher on an audience development program in regional Queensland and the Northern Territory.
