The Masquers depends on the generous support of local corporations, businesses and people like you. Learn how you can help us continue to stage some of the best theatrical shows on the lakeshore, and preserve the Oldest Continuing Community Theater Group in the state for generations to come.
Our pre-season ticket sales have been suspended due to the uncertainty caused by the pandemic. We will be announcing ticket availability and venues for our first two shows in advance of each show. Hopefully, we will be back to normal beginning with our 91st season.
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 90 years. and last year was no exception. Though we didn't performed at our traditional home, the Capitol Civic Centre, we did manage to produce two shows at alternate venues. Our 91st season signals our return to "The Masquers Stage" at the CCC and promises to one of the most entertaining seasons yet.
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.
The Masquers proudly present the cast and crew of Clue, the third and final production of this season. The director of this show, Claran LaViolette, is very excited about being able to work with such a talented cast and promises an enetertaining evening for all who attend the performances.

The Masquers is accepting applications for the annual Bill & Hellen Plumb, Lenora Sheahan Memorial Scholarship Program. Each year the Scholarship Committee reviews applications for this award and chooses a worthy recipient. The goal of this scholarship award is to help students who are seeking a degree in the arts.
Originally named for Bill and Helen Plumb, two people who were very instrumental Masquers members for many years, the award was expanded to memorialize Lenora Sheahan. It's fitting that this award keeps the memory of three of the most youth oriented and influental members in the Masquers history.
There have been many recipients over the years, but the last few years, because of pandemic limitations, there have been no applicants. We are hopeful that this will be the year we once again receive applications for this award.

Beginning in November the Masquers will be returning to the Capitol Civic Centre with a full slate of shows marking our 91st year of continuous operation.
Coming this season is a special musical revue created by Music Theatre International to celebrate local theatre. We are very excited to announce that the Masquers will be collaborating with Treehouse Theater for the production of this show. All Together Now! will be performed world-wide the weekend of November 12 - 14.
Our second offering of the year will be a classic farce that somehow has escaped our attention until now. Boeing, Boeing is non-stop entertainment that will have you laughing in the isles.
After waiting for what seemed like forever, and then an additional year because of a pandemic, we are finally going to bring Clue to the stage at the Capitol Civic Centre as our third offering of the season.
