Did you know that ticket sales covers only 65% of costs in putting on a live theatre performance? Did you know that MET is the longest continuously-operating community theatre in Arizona (founded in 1937)? Did you know that we DEPEND on donations to keep us going? We are an all-volunteer organization - NO paid staff. Every $ we get goes into producing fine, affordable, outstanding live performance! The money raised in this project will cover pre-production costs: licensing rights, music, building sets, costumes, advertising, renting rehearsal and performance space, props, etc.
