MET Announces Season Preview at VOLT
On Tuesday, June 6 from 6:30pm - 8:30pm, Volt Restaurant, located at 228 N Market Street in the heart of Frederick's nationally renowned historic district, will host a preview of Maryland Ensemble Theatre's (MET) 2017-2018 Mainstage season. MET, Frederick's largest producing non-profit theatre company, will be announcing and previewing their 20th full season of plays that will run from September 2017 through June 2018 at their home in the lower level of the former FSK Hotel at 31 West Patrick Street.
The Season Preview will take place outside in the picturesque courtyard of the 19th century brownstone mansion that houses the critically acclaimed Volt restaurant co-owned by Hilda Staples, a former MET Board Member, and Executive Chef Bryan Voltaggio, who will be familiar to many from his appearances on Top Chef and Top Chef Masters. MET Ensemble actors will perform in the sneak peek of upcoming shows, which includes a ridiculously funny updated spoof revised from MET's early days, a favorite holiday delight, and a stage adaptation of a classic 1980s book. Titles will not be released until June 6th, but MET promises an eclectic mix that honors our mission of thought-provoking, top-notch entertainment. There will be a cash bar and complimentary hors d'oeuvres at the event. The preview is free of charge and open to the public. RSVPs are not required but appreciated and the first 60 RSVPs will be guaranteed a seat. RSVPs can be made to firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling the theatre's box office at 301-694-4744.
In conjunction with the preview on June 6, MET is also selling tickets for a chance to win dinner for two at Volt's exclusive Table 21. The chef's table features a remarkable 21-course tasting menu. Tickets for a chance to win this delectable experience are $10 or three for $20 and can be purchased online at marylandensemble.org or by calling 301-694-4744. The winner will be selected at the preview event on June 6 but you do not need to be present to win.
