The METG has been hard at work getting ready for an amazing year in 2022/2023!

We wanted to take a moment to pass along some information and open up member registration. Please take a moment to read through the information below. The link to the Membership Registration Form is at the bottom of this email.

Before we share some exciting updates with you, we wanted to pass along a reminder about some upcoming deadlines/meetings:

  • As a reminder, our mandatory Annual Meeting of the METG Membership will be held on Tuesday, October 18th. The meeting will begin at 6:30PM and will be held at Framingham High School. Light refreshments will be served.
  • The membership registration deadline is also October 18th. Memberships submitted after that date may be subject to a late fee and/or may result in being placed on a waitlist for certain METG programs.

In addition, we wanted to share with you some exciting updates about our plans for the 2022-2023 program year. Additional details will be shared in future communications and at the Annual Meeting.

  • Given more favorable public health conditions, we anticipate returning to a traditional High School Drama Festival schedule, including holding State Finals (and a belated celebration of our 90th festival!);
  • Additionally, we anticipate a return to a more normal scope and sequence for the Middle School Drama Festival (albeit with a slight adjustment to festival dates!)
  • We are excited to announce the return of our Marquee Musical Theater Awards. While we are working to finalize the details of this program, we are thrilled to be able to bring back this opportunity for program growth and recognition.
  • Middle School and High School Contests will be back in person with a potential virtual option.
  • And, finally, we are really looking forward to sharing more with you about the return of a full complement of supportive educational programs, including but not limited to: student workshops, teacher workshops and professional development, expansion of support for new and new-ish directors at our MS and HS festivals, and dedicated space to share resources and collaborate.

We really hope you will be able to join us this year. After three years of modified programs, we are eager to return to a full calendar of events!
