As we reach the end of our unprecedented 2019-2020 season, we here on the Montreal English Theatre Awards Committee have been discussing how best to recognize the outstanding work of our community during a season that was cut short by the pandemic. We are committed to holding space for Montreal theatre companies and artists and are working to ensure that this year’s ceremony is reflective of our core values. Awards institutions across the country have opted to hold their ceremonies virtually, and we have decided to do the same. We believe that this will allow us to prioritize the health of our community while maintaining the visibility and longevity of our thriving theatre scene.
Since 2012, the METAs have been a vital gathering-point to assemble and recognize the artistic achievements of Montreal theatre artists. While we are unable to gather in person this year, the spirit of celebrating the outstanding work of our community shall continue with the eighth annual METAs ceremony being hosted virtually and online. We are looking forward to working within this new medium to provide you with an entertaining, memorable and profound experience from the comfort of your own homes.
Further details regarding the date of the nominees announcement and the ceremony itself will be released soon. In the meantime, we encourage you to reach out with any suggestions you might have at firstname.lastname@example.org
We wish you health, happiness and connectivity during these changing times.
The METAs Committee
