exists to extend the cultural birthright of
participation to all people.
At it's heart, MET is committed to
the art of story. We claim the great stories of our heritage as the birthright for all people. We work to
encourage the creation of new stories and new artists whose voices speak to the rich totality of our community and
whose perspectives deepen our understanding of each other and of our selves. We believe that exploration of personal
creativity and opportunity for engagement in life long learning is critical to the health and happiness of people
and our world.
Twenty years in
the planning and three years in development, Metropolitan Ensemble Theatre is a not for profit professional theatre founded
