The Masquers Celebrates 88 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 87 years. Our latest offering includes It's a Wonderful Life, Sex Please We're Sixty, and Mary Poppins.

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 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.

It's A Wonderful Life Huge Success!

The first show of the Masquers 88th season came off beautifully.  It was attended by large audiences signalling their appreciation of our choice of a holiday themed show.  Or, maybe it's just that the movie is well loved by all.  Either way, it has started off this season with a bang.

If you missed the show we are terribly sorry.  We would suggest you learn from this "terrible" error and purchase your tickets for the remaining two shows of the season, Sex Please We're Sixty, and Mary Poppins, because it's clear you won't want to miss either one.
