MET Response to AEA's Non-Equity Ban

Metropolitan Ensemble Theatre can confirm that at 9:45am on October 29, 2019 the company was informed by a community member via Facebook that Actor's Equity Association had extended their Do Not Work announcement to include AEA members, EMCs, and all non-union actors and stage managers.  We are working to resolve these issues.

A line of communication has been extended to Actor's Equity association to clarify the reasoning behind the extension of the Do Not Work list.

Metropolitan Ensemble Theatre is deeply concerned about this development and our first priority is and always has been the artists who work with us. We are particularly concerned for the economic and artistic well-being of the non-equity community who have been injured in this recent development.

We want our community to know that this is something we take seriously. We are doing our best to resolve this and open clear channels of communication.

We have compiled a list of FAQs and are working to verify more information. These questions and their answers that can be found at clicking here.

Community members and constituents are invited to email query@metkc.org for more information or to offer a question.

Further information will be released as it becomes available.
