The Masquers, Inc., the oldest continuing Community Theater group in Wisconsin, is launching its 86th season of entertainment on the Lakeshore. Throughout our history we have been very fortunate to have committed supporters who make it possible to stage quality productions year after year.
The Masquers harnesses the exceptional talent of area performers and provides quality Community Theater entertainment for our audiences. We also support area arts students through our scholarship program and other area non-profit organizations with ticket donations to assist in their fundraising efforts.
What we do best, and have done best throughout our history, is stage exceptional theatrical shows. As you can imagine, the production costs for these shows has increased over the years, and ticket sales don’t always offset the cost of production and simply cannot generate the income necessary to run a vibrant program.
As always, economic considerations play an important role in our planning. Increased production costs, maintenance of our home, The Masquers Coach House, and the need to upgrade our facilities, represent a significant financial challenge. These factors make it imperative that we continually expand the support we receive from donors. Your donation will help us hold our productions to the high standard to which you have grown accustomed as well as maintain and upgrade our facilities. We greatly appreciate any support you can give us because such voluntary contributions are vital to our ability to continue to have a positive impact on our community.
There are several programs available for you to participate in our continued success on the lakeshore. Please take some time to review each one, and contact us for more information today.
Your company will enjoy recognition as the sole sponsor of the show in all print, radio and electronic advertising connected with the show.
