The Maryland Ensemble Theatre is a mainstay in Frederick’s arts and entertainment scene that has produced hundreds of shows across its ensembles and troupes. But before its success, it was simply an idea thrown around in a college dorm room.

Tad Janes, cofounder and producing artistic director at the MET, said the spark for its creation was a discussion among friends during the Contemporary American Theater Festival in Shepherdstown, West Virginia. One night, the friends were talking about what they wanted to accomplish in the theater world: teach classes, devise original plays, form a comedy troupe.
