It is important to note that Metro Theatre is a registered non-profit society, and primarily a volunteer organization. The organization receives no significant grants or funding. We depend almost entirely on revenue from ticket sales to cover the substantial costs of mounting our six-production season each year. We could not do this without the contributions of the many volunteers who donate their time and talent onstage, backstage and in the front-of-house.
We welcome both emerging or amateur performers, who may have jobs and careers outside the theatre, and students of theatre who are looking to gain experience and showcase their talent in a working theatre environment. Our assumption is that each person who auditions and accepts a role, and/or joins our backstage or FOH teams, does so because they feel that the benefits of being part of Metro Theatre outweigh any potential drawbacks including the considerable time commitment, lack of financial compensation.
This is a non-union production – all roles in this show are volunteer positions.
