MET’s CASTING PLEDGE: MET is committed to the practice of color-conscious casting, inclusive of all ethnicities/races, sizes, gender identities, sexual orientations, and disabilities. All roles are available. Summer Community Productions are tuition based programs. 

MET’s DIVERSITY, EQUITY & INCLUSION PLEDGE: Maryland Ensemble Theatre is dedicated to creating anti-oppressive artistic spaces and producing work that is representative of and accessible to our entire community. It is imperative that we make our spaces open to and affirming of all people. We realize that our past actions did not consistently fuel the deeper work and progress needed to create a truly inclusive theatre, specifically of traditionally marginalized populations. We aspire to reflect the community around us by fostering and maintaining diversity, equity, and inclusion. Our efforts must be continuous, intentional and evolving.
