The Masquers Celebrates 89 Seasons

Beginning in 1987 we became one of the charter Arts Partners for the newly renovated Capitol Civic Centre in downtown Manitowoc and have called this beautiful theatre our home performance venue for over 30 years.

The Masquers, Inc. has been a leader in the Manitowoc arts community since 1931. A non-profit organization, we lay claim to the title of one of Wisconsin's Oldest Community Theater Groups. Throughout our history we have produced at least two shows every season for the last 88 years. Our latest offering includes Mamma Mia!, Calendar Girls, and The Foreigner.

In 1944 The Masquers purchased the original coach house for the Rahr Mansion, now the Rahr-West Museum. The Coach House has been our home for auditions, rehearsals, costumes, set pieces and club meetings ever since. Beginning in 1987 we became one of the charter Arts Partners for the newly renovated Capitol Civic Centre in downtown Manitowoc and have called this beautiful theatre our home performance venue for over 30 years.

Mary Poppins a Huge Success!

The final show of the Masquers 88th season was absolutely magical.  It was attended by large audiences signalling their appreciation of our choice of this practically perfect performance.  Or, maybe it's just that the movie is well loved by all.  Either way, it was the best way to wrap up what has been a very fun and successful season.

If you enjoyed one or all of the shows this past year we urge you to get your season tickets for our 89th season.  It promisses to be as good or better than last.

See you at the theatre!
