Commonly asked questions

Are concessions served during shows?

During the majority of our shows, light concessions are available including popcorn, candy, sodas, and water. A variety of beers is also available for purchase for those with valid ID.

Can I call the theatre to purchase tickets or purchase them at the door?

No. The MET currently does not have an in-house box office for purchasing tickets. All tickets must be purchased through the event distributor. Most of the events only provide online ticket sales, which can be accessed through our events page. Local groups such as Morgantown Theatre Company, WVU Arts & Entertainment or any of the local dance studios may provide in-person ticket sales, but you will need to reach out directly to the business putting on the show.
