At a community and media event held at the Monument-National’s Café on Thursday, September 26th, the Montreal English Theatre Awards Committee announced the nominees for this year’s Awards Ceremony.
The Montreal English Theatre Awards (METAs) recognize and celebrate outstanding artistic work in Montreal’s English Theatre. Established in 2012, the peer-juried awards exist to promote professional and emerging English theatre artists and companies, to heighten their visibility both regionally and beyond, and to elevate the level of critical discourse about theatre in Montreal amongst artists and with the community at large.
This past season, the METAs Jury has selected a total of 95 nominations, and will be awarding 20 trophies at the Ceremony: 17 peer-juried awards (including a new Outstanding Choreography and / or Movement Direction Award); 1 community award (determined by our independent Community Jury); and 2 honorary awards.
The 7th annual Ceremony is presented in partnership with the Conseil des Arts de Montréal and will take place on Sunday, November 3rd at the Monument-National’s Salle Ludger-Duvernay.
The METAs Committee thanks the Monument-National and the National Theatre School of Canada who return as our venue sponsor for the second year in a row. The Ceremony will be directed by Cristina Cugliandro, written by Willow Cioppa, and hosted by Patrick Émmanuel Abellard and Kate Hammer.
