Now that the worst of the pandemic is in the rear view mirror it's time for us to get back to doing what we do best -- putting on shows. Restrictions on gathering are gone or severely reduced and we are all getting back to doing the things we really enjoy.
The Masquers is no different, we are announcing a new season that will hopefully make up for the disappointments of the last 18-months. You can read all about the shows in the article below and find even more information on each show page.
With a new season comes a new pre-season ticket campaign. As in years past we are soliciting new Sponsors and Season Ticket holders who are very important to our commitment to bringing quality community theater to our lakeshore audiences.
Sponsors are the first to receive tickets to all of our performances and also provide additional monetary donations which are so important to our continued success.
Season Ticket holders are the next group to receive tickets to all shows in our season and receive a discounted price for their tickets.
We have completed our pre-season ticket campaign and tickets are now on sale for all shows. You can purchase tickets online or in person at the Capitol Civic Centre Box Office.
You can learn more about our season by requesting a brochure.

The Masquers has been around since the first Community Chest fundraising event in 1931 when a few friends got together to put on a show. What set them apart from other performers that night is that they kept putting on shows every year since.
The Masquers seasons consisted of two to four shows every year making them one of the oldest continuously operating community theater groups in the state. "The show must go on" seemed to be the motto for the group as they continued to present a slate of shows each season; even during WW II.
The last few seasons we found ourselves in the middle of a pandemic which shortened our 89th season and caused us to rethink our 90th season. Not willing to give up without a fight, the Masquers resolved to "put on a show" even if it meant doing so on our own front lawn! And so, we continued our tradition and presented two shows last season even though we were forced to find alternative venues for each show.
Now that we are back to the Capitol Civic Centre on "The Masquers Stage" we are proud to present our 91st Anniversary Season.
In an effort to reinvigorate local community theatre Music Theater International has put together a collection of unforgettable songs from their extensive collection of musicals. The goal of this project is to have theatre groups around the world performing this musical revue on one weekend in November. The Masquers along with Treehouse Theater have joined this effort and we're proud to showcase our local talent in the first show of our 91st season.
This show will be presented November 12, 13, & 14, 2021. We hope everyone will join us for a night of music and enjoyment.
Originally written in the 1960s by French author Marc Camoletti, this show was translated to English by Beverley Cross, and Francis Evans and also made famous by the movie of the same name in 1965.
The play features bachelor Bernard, who has a flat in Paris and three stewardesses all engaged to him without knowing about each other. Bernard's life gets bumpy, though, when his friend Robert comes to stay, and his master plan begins to fall apart. Soon, all three stewardesses are in Paris simultaneously and catastrophe looms.
Boeing, Boeing will be performed March 10-12 at the Capital Civic Centre.
Based on the iconic 1985 Paramount movie which was inspired by the classic Hasbro board game, Clue is a hilarious farce-meets-murder mystery that is the perfect way to end our 91st season. You know the characters - Wadsworth (the butler), Miss Scarlett, Professor Plum, Mrs. White, Mr. Green, Mrs. Peacock and Colonel Mustard - now you can enjoy the fun live on stage.
Clue is the comedy whodunit that will leave both cult-fans and newcomers in stitches as they try to figure out…WHO did it, WHERE, and with WHAT!
