City of Morgantown Enters New Partnership with WVU College of Creative Arts on Met Theatre

The partnership between the City of Morgantown and the West Virginia University College of Creative Arts to manage the Metropolitan Theatre will expire on June 30, 2017. 

City Manager Paul Brake and the College of Creative Arts Dean, Paul Kreider, came to a new arrangement that will no longer include the management of the theater to be under the College of Creative Arts. The City Manager believes this will provide a better leverage of resources from creative sectors of the community.

Faculty and Administrators of the College of Creative Arts will be providing consulting services, as requested, on technical operations and operations management on an as needed basis. 

The requests for such consulting services will be requested by the City Manager, or his designee. The value of the services, to be provided by the University, will be $15,000. These services will not be charged to the Met Theater or to the City, but provided in exchange for free dates at the Theatre. The College of Creative Arts will be allowed twenty (20) days per year to utilize the Theatre without cost. The value of the consultant services is roughly equivalent to the Met’s rental costs.
