The Masquers Celebrates 87 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 25 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 85 years. Our latest offering includes Wait Until Dark, Heaven Can Wait, and Legally Blonde: The Musical!

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 25 years.
