Fund Raising & Team Building

Full Metro production Buy Outs give you your own private performance.

During a regular show run, the 300 seat theatre amounts to $7500 of performance value.

Organizations who buy out an entire performance can pay as little as $5.50 per ticket with a little forward planning. This allows a significant fund raising opportunity (i.e. several thousand dollars) to help those organizations who resell these tickets.

Organizations can alternately offer their members team building activites at a significant disount. For example buying out one night of the Christmas Panto for members and their children is a poplular Christmas even treat for many organizations staff and clients.

Capital Project Support

Support, in all its forms, is appreciated and needed.

While our operating costs are our biggest expense, there are a number of other ‘things’ … capital projects… that we need as well. This Wish List of ‘things’ needing out of the ordinary attention will help Metro.

  1. Recently repairs to the plumbing and water supply of the building revealled wear and aging issues. While repairs are a short term fix replacement is the real cure.
  2. Rain, sun and snow are taking their toll on our marquee. Our marquee program is accumulating funds for its repair and painting. Unfortunately, the rate at which the fund is growing is painfully slow.
